Superspread event

On 2020-11-25 a superspreading event most likely occurred in Scotland. 100 days later (2021-03-05) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 263 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 994 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 2021-04-01, 126 days after it started, with 24255 sequences found in total.

The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2021-05-10.
