The former president of the United States, Bill Clinton, was hospitalized last Tuesday in a hospital in Irvine, California, with a serious urinary infection (which could have degenerated into sepsis), as reported tonight by CNN. Clinton, 75, was admitted to the intensive care unit, primarily for privacy, and was not connected to any respiratory machines, according to doctors who treated the former president at Irvine Medical Center in California. The condition of the former Democratic president (1993-2001) is not related to the covid or his previous coronary problems.
According to the statement issued by the medical team, Clinton “was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and antibiotics and fluids were administered intravenously.” Clinton remains in the hospital for “ongoing follow-up,” according to Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal GP. “After two days of treatment, her white blood cell count is dropping and she is responding well to antibiotics,” the doctors said. “We hope he goes home soon,” they concluded. According to Clinton’s spokesman, Ángel Ureña, the former president is “improving” and “in a good mood.”
In February 2010, former President Bill Clinton underwent a successful surgical operation to place two stents in a coronary artery after he experienced severe chest pain. In 2004, Clinton underwent a successful quadruple bypass operation to unblock her arteries.
