On 2020-11-30 a superspreading event most likely occurred in California. 9 days later (2020-12-09) it started to super-spread through the community. A total of 70 copies of this genome (that represents the core of the outbreak), were reported in Gisaid, a proxy for primary transmissions, along with 10 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 2020-12-15, 15 days after it started, with 2085 sequences found in total.
The last sequence of the superspreading event was collected on 2020-12-15.
