Former US president Bill Clinton admitted to intensive care unit following infection

Former US president Bill Clinton was admitted two days ago to a California hospital for treatment of a “non-COVID infection,” a spokesman says.

“On Tuesday evening former President Bill Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical centre for treatment of a non-COVID infection,” Clinton spokesman Angel Urena said via Twitter on Thursday.

“He was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids.

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

CNN reported that Clinton was in the intensive care unit, primarily to give him privacy, and he was not on a breathing machine, according to doctors treating the former president at University of California Irvine Medical Centre, California.

His condition is not related to his previous heart problems or COVID-19, CNN said.
