Bill Clinton released from hospital after treatment for infection

Bill Clinton was released from a hospital in Southern California on Sunday where he had been treated for an infection.

The former US president was released around 8 a.m. from the University of California, Irvine Medical Center.

Clinton, 75, was admitted to a hospital in southeast Los Angeles on Tuesday with an infection unrelated to Covid-19, officials said.

Clinton spokesman Angel Urena said on Saturday that Clinton would remain hospitalized an extra night to receive further antibiotics intravenously. But all the health indicators “were heading in the right direction,” Urena said.

An aide to the former president said Clinton had a urological infection that had spread to his bloodstream.

Since Clinton left the White House in 2001, the former president has faced several health issues.

In 2004, he underwent quadruple bypass surgery after experiencing prolonged chest pain and shortness of breath. He returned to the hospital for surgery for a partially collapsed lung in 2005, and in 2010 he had a pair of stents implanted in a coronary artery.

Clinton responded to concerns about her health by adopting a largely vegan diet that has seen her lose weight and report improved health.
