on the 17th local time, Clinton was discharged from the hospital accompanied by his wife Hillary Clinton

it is reported that on the 17th, Clinton walked out of the hospital hand in hand with his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, and then paid tribute to the hospital staff. Asked how he felt, Clinton gave the camera a thumbs up

Amin, executive director of the Department of medicine at the University of California Irvine, has been supervising Clinton’s medical team. He issued a statement after Clinton was discharged from the hospital

“(former president) Clinton was discharged from the University of California Irvine Medical Center on the 17th. His temperature and leukocyte count returned to normal, and he will return to his home in New York to complete his antibiotic treatment.” Amin wrote, “on behalf of all people in the University of California Irvine medical center, I am honored to treat him and will continue to monitor his progress.”

Clinton was admitted to the ICU of the University of California Irvine Medical Center last week because of a urinary tract infection that spread into the blood. According to his doctor, Clinton was in good spirits throughout the treatment. He was admitted to the ICU for privacy and security, not because he needed intensive care

according to Clinton’s office, Clinton, 75, felt tired on the 12th and was sent to the hospital after testing

according to Clinton spokesman angel Urena, as of the 16th, Clinton “continued to make outstanding progress” and received further intravenous antibiotics in the hospital overnight

according to a source familiar with the situation, the antibiotics needed to treat Clinton’s type of infection must be administered intravenously rather than orally, which is why he stayed in the hospital. An aide to Clinton said he had never experienced life-threatening septic shock

Clinton’s doctors said that urinary tract infections are common in the elderly and easy to treat, although they can spread rapidly into the blood

Clinton has faced other health challenges in the past. He underwent four heart bypass operations in 2004 and implanted two stents to open an artery in 2010

Bill Clinton was the 42nd president of the United States from 1993 to 2001
