The cluster of coronavirus infections that originated from the Big Moose Inn outside Millinocket on Aug. 7 continues to grow in Maine, state health officials said, after guests flouted social distancing and mask guidelines. Now people who have no association with the party have died, including six residents of the Maplecrest Rehabilitation and Living Center in Madison, Maine CDC Director Nirav Shah said in a news briefing Tuesday.

The Millinocket wedding is not the only rule-defying celebration linked to a growing number of cases, as contact tracers and public health officials across the country continue to track down infections that stem from summer "superspreader" gatherings, including a motorcycle rally in South Dakota and a choir practice in Washington.

Earlier this year, a leadership conference for the biotech company Biogen in Boston made headlines when infections were initially tracked among the attendees who fanned out across several states. Months later, researchers sequenced genetic errors of the virus, linking the outbreak with infections among Boston's homeless population.

Between 10 and 20 percent of infected people are responsible for 80 percent of the coronavirus's spread, Maria Van Kerkhove, technical lead for the World Health Organization's Health Emergencies Program, said at a news briefing Thursday.
