Former US President Bill Clinton admitted to hospital

Former US President Bill Clinton has been admitted to hospital for a urinary tract infection that spread to his bloodstream, media reports said.

The former President has been admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center's intensive care unit.

"He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring," according to a joint statement quoted by CNN in its report on Thursday evening from Dr. Alpesh Amin, chair of medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton's personal primary physician.

They said that Clinton was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.

Clinton is in good spirits, talking to family and staff, and has been up and walking, according to both his doctors and his staff, as reported by CNN.

"After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well," the doctors told CNN.

"We hope to have him go home soon," they said.

Doctors said his admission is not related to heart or Covid-19.
According to reports, Clinton had quadruple bypass heart surgery in 2004 and had two stents inserted to open one artery in 2010.
