Fauci Gets Grilled in an Interview with Mexican Comedian Eugenio Derbez

‘So an emergency use authorization is based on the criteria if the benefit clearly outweighs the risk’
By Grabien Staff

EXCERPT:

DERBEZ: "Okay, so — I asked if it was approved by the FDA, but I think that it's a different thing that — an emergency use authorization than an approval. So what is the difference between an emergency use authorization and an official approval by the FDA?"

FAUCI: "Yes, that's a very good question. So, an emergency use authorization is based on the criteria if the benefit clearly outweighs the risk, and that you get a good degree of efficacy and safety. The full licensure is when you follow it for a longer period of time and you get more information and data. I have no doubt, given how very, very efficacious all three of these are, that they will ultimately get the full authorization in the sense of what's called a biological license approval. But an emergency use authorization is really quite of an important step in the direction of getting it the official approval.”
