Bill Clinton Hospitalised For Infection

 Former president Bill Clinton has been hospitalized with a non-Covid-related infection, a spokesman said Thursday evening.

Clinton’s doctors said it was a blood infection.

Clinton, 75, was admitted to a hospital in Irvine in southern California on Tuesday evening, Angel Urena tweeted.

He gave no details other than to say the infection was not Covid-related.

“He is on the mend, in good spirits and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care,” Urena said.

The University of California Irvine Medical Center confirmed Clinton was admitted there but said nothing else.

Urena tweeted a statement from Clinton’s doctors saying Clinton was admitted “for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids.”

It added: “After two days of treatment his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well.”

The doctors said they are in non-stop touch with Clinton’s New York-based medical team including his cardiologist and “we hope to have him go home soon.”
