Former US President Bill Clinton was hospitalised with an infection, according to the statement made by a spokesman yesterday. He was admitted to a hospital in Southern California on Tuesday evening, where doctors have determined that the issue is a blood infection. No other details have been released, other than that this issue is not related to Covid-19.

Clinton served as President of the United States from 1993-2001. As the 42nd President of the US, he was only 46 when he was elected, making him the third youngest President ever at the time. He is perhaps better known for being impeached by the American House of Representatives in 1998 after lying to Congress about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, a White House intern at the time.

CNN reported that the cause of the health scare was a urinary tract infection spreading to the bloodstream. Clinton’s spokesman Angel Urena explains that Clinton is doing well and in good condition.

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

Urena tweeted a statement from Clinton’s doctors, which explained that the former president had been admitted for “monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids,” and went on to describe his treatment and recovery process.

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

Clinton’s doctors in California are in touch with his medical team which is based in New York, including his cardiologist. He has a history of heart disease, and in 2004 received quadruple bypass surgery. He had complications with his heart again in 2010, and this time received stent surgery. Clinton went vegan not long after, and explained that it was not a difficult decision.

“Not when you have [had a] quadruple bypass surgery and want to live to be a grandfather.”
