So I said to the team, “Maybe we should just sit down with the family and describe what happened. Maybe we should actually consider an apology, and say, ‘Look, we are really sorry that this happened, that you lost the pregnancy. We shouldn’t have given the drug to you. This was a mistake – we didn’t know you were pregnant. We meant you no harm. We don’t know whether this drug could have caused the loss of the pregnancy. It could have, but we’ve given it many times, all around the world – we’ve given millions of doses, and it’s been well-tolerated’.” (read the entire interview)
