Former President Bill Clinton is being treated for a non-COVID-related infection in a California hospital, a spokesman said Thursday night.
Clinton was admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center on Tuesday evening.
“He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care,” spokesperson Angel Urena said.
Clinton’s physicians released a statement saying the former president is responding well to treatment.
“President Clinton was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center and diagnosed with an infection. He was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring. After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well. The California-based medical team has been in constant communication with the President’s New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist. We hope to have him go home soon.”
