Former President Bill Clinton admitted to hospital with infection, on the mend


Clinton had several health problems, mainly with his heart.

Former President Bill Clinton was admitted to hospital on Tuesday with an infection, according to a spokesperson, but is recovering.

“President Clinton was admitted to the UCI Medical Center on Tuesday to receive treatment for an infection unrelated to COVID,” Angel Ureña, spokesman for Clinton, noted in a report. “He is on the mend, in good spirits and is incredibly grateful to the doctors, nurses and staff who provide him with excellent care.”

Clinton, 75, was president from January 1993 until January 2001.

He has had a number of health issues over the past two decades, although most are related to heart problems.
