Bill Clinton will spend one more night in a hospital in Southern California recovering from the infection, a spokesman for the former US president said. Clinton stays, he added, “to receive intravenous antibiotics ahead of scheduled discharge tomorrow.”
“President Clinton has made excellent progress in the last 24 hours,” former president Angel Uren’s spokesman said in a written statement.
Clinton will stay overnight at the University of California Medical Center, Irvine, “to receive intravenous antibiotics ahead of scheduled discharge tomorrow,” he added.
ill Clinton was admitted to the hospital Tuesday with a non-COVID-19 urological infection and is now “in a great mood and spending time with his family, hanging out with friends and watching college football,” Urena said in a statement on Saturday.
The state of health of the former president of the USA
Clinton has had a urological infection that has spread through his bloodstream but is under treatment and has never suffered septic shock, a potentially life-threatening condition, a spokesman for Uren said.
Ever since Clinton left the White House in 2001, he has struggled with health problems, AP reminds us. In 2004, he underwent four bypass surgery after prolonged chest pain and shortness of breath. In 2005, he returned to the hospital for surgery on a partially collapsed lung, and in 2010, he was implanted with a pair of stents in a coronary artery.
In response to emerging threats, the former president adopted a largely vegan diet that made him lose weight and improve his health, according to AP.
