Former U.S. President Bill Clinton hospitalized with infection

Former U.S. President Bill Clinton has been hospitalized with an infection unrelated to the coronavirus, CNN reported on October 14.

The 75-year-old former White House leader was taken to the University of California Irvine Medical Center.

Clinton is being treated with antibiotics and is “on the mend” and “in good spirits,” according to Clinton spokesman Angel UreƱa.

Democrat Bill Clinton was president of the United States from 1993 to 2001. On February 11, 2010 he was admitted to a hospital in New York City, complaining of pain in the heart area. The former president of the United States underwent stent surgery. After that, Clinton decided to become a vegan and two years after his hospitalization said that a vegan diet saved his life.

During his presidency, Bill Clinton was caught up in a scandal that nearly led to his impeachment. In January 1998, he, who was married to Hillary Clinton, was accused of having an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky. After the investigation concluded, charges of perjury and obstruction of justice were prepared against Clinton, leading to his resignation, but they were soon dropped.
