Former president Bill Clinton ‘responding well’ to hospital treatment for infection

Former US president Bill Clinton, 75, was admitted two days ago to a hospital in California with a “non-covid infection,” his spokesman has said.

“On Tuesday evening Former President Bill Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical center for treatment of a non-covid
infection,” spokesman Angel Urena said on Twitter.

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

Two doctors treating Mr Clinton said he was “admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids.”

The joint statement from Dr Alpesh Amin and Dr Lisa Bardack added: “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.

“We hope to have him go home soon.”
