This has not been a good year for Cambridge's Biogen

First Biogen has a conference at the Marriott Long Wharf that might have led to 300,000 Covid-19 cases across the country and around the world, including at the Pine Street Inn, and in Everett, Chelsea, Revere and Norwood. Now it's agreed to pay $22 million to settle federal claims that it paid kickbacks to get patients to ask for its multiple-sclerosis drugs.

They made more then $22 million from the drug.

A real punishment would be to invalidate any patents related to the drug.

Where did the folk at the conference get it from? Just curious!

If you were really curious, you probably would have found and read the research papers on the conference (there have been at least two; here's one), which conclude the Biogen contagion was started by a traveler (or travelers) from Europe, not China.

There was one case imported into Boston from China - the first in the state, in fact. But the man who was infected, a UMass Boston student, knew enough to self quarantine himself when he returned from Wuhan and started feeling ill, so he didn't spread it to anybody else.

So much better than guessing and speculation

It doesn't matter where the Covid-19 infected conference attendee came from--s/he still helped cause the Covid-19 virus to spread here in this country and throughout the world.
