Former U.S. President Bill Clinton, 75, was taken to a California hospital due to an infection, his spokesman announced Thursday, insisting he was “recovering.”
“On Tuesday evening, President Clinton was admitted to the UCI Medical Center for treatment for an infection unrelated to Kovit,” Angel Urena said in a statement on Twitter.
He added, “He is recovering, his soul is well, and he is very grateful to the doctors, nurses and staff who gave him the best care.”
A spokeswoman for Clinton’s doctors said the latter was taken to a hospital for “close monitoring” and that he had received antibiotics. They continued, “He is in the hospital for follow-up treatment.”
After two days of treatment, they added, “(Clinton) responds well to antibiotics. The California medical team is in regular contact with the president’s medical team in New York, including his cardiologist. We hope he returns home soon.
Clinton was President of the United States from 1993 to 2001.
