What is a Super Spreader Event and Examples of Real Events


What are Super Spreaders? Recently, there has been a lot of discussion about this term. Like it or not, in fact this has happened in the real world.

Let's first understand the perception of the Super Spreader. While one person infected with COVID-19 will usually infect about three others (ECDC, May 2020), a super-spreader is someone who infects more than that number. Super-spreaders are highly contagious. Most superspreaders are not aware that they are infected and spread the virus unknowingly.

Launching the Open Access Government, the following are some examples of Super Spreader Events that have occurred and have gone viral.

In South Korea, a 35-year-old Chinese woman, unknowingly infected with COVID-19, attended two church services, on February 9 and 16, 2020. Her presence infected 5,000 people with the virus. He developed symptoms between two church visits, including a high fever, and was eventually persuaded to take a test, but by the time he got the results, it was too late.

When Santa visited the Nursing Home in Belgium last December, he tested positive for the virus three days later and has accidentally infected 127 people, 27 of whom have now died.

In September 2020, an American woman arrived in the town of Garmisch-Partenkirchen in Bavaria, Germany. He recently tested positive for the virus but ignored quarantine rules. He went drinking in pubs and bars and infected 22 people. As a result, the resort had to be closed for two weeks. He now faces charges, a possible €2,000 fine, as well as a possible prison sentence of up to 10 years.

In February 2020, the pharmaceutical company Biogen held a conference in Boston where 99 people were infected. By October 2020, the virus had spread further through their contacts, infecting around 300,000 people in 29 different states and countries.
