Bill Clinton to spend one more night in hospital with non-Covid infection

  WASHINGTON, Oct 17, 2021 (BSS/AFP) - Former US President Bill Clinton will

spend another night at a hospital in California being treated for an
infection, his spokesman said Saturday.

  Clinton, 75, who led the United States from 1993 to 2001, was admitted
Tuesday evening to the UCI Medical Center in Irvine, south of Los Angeles,
with a non-Covid-related blood infection.

  Spokesman Angel Urena said on Twitter that Clinton will remain at the
hospital overnight "to continue to receive IV antibiotics before an expected
discharge tomorrow."

  Clinton is "in great spirits and has been spending time with family,
catching up with friends, and watching college football," Urena tweeted.

  The New York Times, quoting an aide, reported the former president
developed a urinary tract infection that turned into sepsis.

  Sepsis is an extreme bodily reaction to infection that affects 1.7 million
people in America every year, according to the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention.

  It kills 270,000 of those infected every year.

  The infection was the latest health scare for America's 42nd president. In
2004, at age 58, he underwent a quadruple bypass operation after doctors
found signs of extensive heart disease.

  Six years later he had stents implanted in his coronary artery.
