Former President Bill Clinton was hospitalized on Tuesday night for a Covid-related infection, according to a spokesman.
Clinton spokeswoman Angel Urena said last Tuesday that the former director was accepted at UC Irvine Medical Center in California.
“She is calm, has a good spirit, and is extremely grateful to the doctors, nurses and staff who are giving her the best possible care,” Urena said in a statement.
Clinton’s doctors said in an agreement that they were allowed to go to the hospital for “tests” and were given AVs and medications.
“She remains in the hospital for further evaluation,” said doctors Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack. “After two days of treatment, her white blood cells are down and she is responding well to antibiotics.”
He said the California medical team had been “in constant contact” with the New York Presidential team, including a cardiologist.
“We expect him to go home soon,” he said in a statement.
Clinton, 75, has had a history of heart problems. In 2004, he underwent three heart surgeries to remove the most blocked arteries, according to NBC News. In 2010, he had another heart procedure to insert two stents into the coronary artery.
