On 2021-01-18 a superspreading event most likely occurred in Skane. 18 days later (2021-02-05) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 43 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 204 genomes that are one-step mutation with respect to the core genome (a proxy for secondary transmissions). The signature for the likely superspreading event ends at about 2021-02-12, 25 days after it started, with 5109 sequences found in total.
The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2021-03-22.
The sequence of this event has been classified as Alpha.
