Bill Clinton Hospitalized Concerning Infection

Former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized this week for an infection. He was admitted to UCI Medical Center’s ICU in Irvine after not feeling well on Tuesday. He contracted a urinary tract infection that spread to his bloodstream.

Angela Urena, Clinton’s spokeswoman, tweeted, “He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care.”

When Clinton was admitted to the hospital, he received IV antibiotics and fluids to fight off the infection. He remains in the hospital for close monitoring. The doctor at UCI and Clinton’s personal physician both said, “He was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.

According to CNN, his doctors reported, “After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down, and he is responding to antibiotics well,” the doctors said. “We hope to have him go home soon.”

Clinton had been in California for a private event for his foundation when he started feeling tired and ill. He was admitted to the hospital after testing took place. His wife, Hilary Clinton, attended the event on both of their behalfs, then traveled to the hospital.

His spokespeople quickly pointed out that his hospitalization was not due to Covid or heart-related issues. In 2004, the former president had quadruple bypass surgery and in 2010 had two stents inserted to open an artery.
