Bill Clinton Hospitalized for Sepsis

Former US President Bill Clinton was admitted to the University of California Irvine (UCI) Medical Center’s intensive care unit for a urinary tract infection that later spread to his bloodstream (sepsis).

In a statement on Twitter, Clinton’s spokesman Angel Ureña said the former president was admitted on Tuesday for a non-Covid-related infection. 

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

Ureña also posted a joint statement from Clinton’s doctors, Dr. Alpesh Amin and Dr. Lisa Bardack, saying the former president had been admitted to the hospital for “close monitoring” and had received IV antibiotics and fluids. 

The two doctors added that “after two days of treatment, his white-blood-cell count was trending down, and he was “responding to antibiotics well.” 

“We hope to have him go home soon,” the statement concluded.

Clinton was in California at a private event for his foundation but felt fatigued and admitted to the hospital on Tuesday after testing, CNN reported.
