Abstract

Using available phylogeographical data of SARS–CoV–2 genomes we attempt at providing a global picture of the virus’ spreading dynamics in terms of directly interpretable parameters. We fit a hidden state multi-state speciation and extinction model to a pre-estimated phylogenetic tree with information on the place of sampling of each strain.
