On 2020-08-13 a superspreading event most likely occurred in Scotland. 2 days later (2020-08-15) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 86 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 44 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 2020-08-21, 8 days after it started, with 497 sequences found in total.
The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2020-08-27.
