All definitional. But I think Vic was fortunate that both MCG and AAMI were under 10 ppl given the crowds.
Or for outside events they were a record.
But yes what places a super spreader is at makes a huge difference. At a party as in Sydney they will quite possibly talk with everyone.
At say Young and Jacksons it may be limited to who is near you.
Key super spreaders really gave Maribyrnong Cluster rapid momentum.
The super spreader at the MCG also created cases at the Young and Jacksons, and 3 other clusters directly. The Barwon Heads Cluster then birthing Bacchus March Cluster.
But the case he created at the MCG was a super spreader who created:
- The AAMI Park cluster
- The MS Frankie Cluster
- The Trinity Grammar Cluster
- The Westgate Tunnel Cluster
By the time the first case returned a positive test at the Airele Apartments (from the removalists), it is estimated that more than hundred people were infected. So that started the outbreak with a bang. Which is a key reason I am nervous about the Al Taqwa teacher who may have been infectious for a week School clusters have been significant in the current Victorian Outbreak.
Crossroads had a pub to start with and Avalon too (though I suspect Avalon may have been growing for a while before the first case was found).
