Former US President Bill Clinton has been admitted to a California hospital for treatment of a “non-Covid-related illness.”
After being hospitalized to UC Irvine Medical Center on Tuesday, Mr. Clinton, 75, is “on the mend” and “in excellent spirits,” according to spokesman Angel Urea.
Mr Clinton has a history of heart problems, however it is unclear what prompted the admission.
His physicians stated that he had got antibiotics and fluids.
Mr Clinton stayed in the hospital for “constant monitoring,” according to the doctors.
“His white blood cell count is going down after two days of therapy, and he is responding well to medicines.”
Mr Clinton’s medical staff in New York, as well as his cardiologist, are in communication with UC Irvine physicians, who believe he will be returned home shortly.
Mr. Clinton was the president of the United States from 1993 to 2001. In 1998, he was impeached for lying to investigators about his affair with Monica Lewinsky, a White House intern. At his Senate trial, he was found not guilty.
Mr Clinton underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2004 and a blocked artery opened ten years later after complaining of chest problems.
The former president, who was renowned for his fondness for fatty meals, became a vegan not long after the second operation.
