Reports have just broke out saying Bill Clinton has been hospitalized in California.
As of right now he’s in the ICU unit at the University of California Irvine’s Medical Center and is being treated for a blood infection called sepsis.
The infection started by a UTI but the infection spread into his bloodstream which quickly made him fatigued and forced him to seek medical attention.
Doctor’s speaking out on behalf of Bill Clinton have announced his medical condition is improving and at this point he is looking to make a full recovery.

CNN broke the story and added these details:
Former President Bill Clinton was admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center’s intensive care unit for a urinary tract infection that spread to his bloodstream, his doctors told CNN on Thursday.
“He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” according to a joint statement Thursday evening from Dr. Alpesh Amin, chair of medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal primary physician. They said that Clinton was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.
“After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well,” the doctors said. “We hope to have him go home soon.”
Clinton, who was in California for a private event for his foundation, had been feeling fatigued on Tuesday and was admitted to the hospital after testing, according to his office.
Bill Clinton’s doctors and staff tell @drsanjaygupta they believe he has a blood infection – known as sepsis – and that he will stay in hospital for at least another day. He’s responding well to antibiotics.

Fox News got the scoop too:
Former President Bill Clinton has been hospitalized in California for a non-COVID-19-related infection.
“On Tuesday evening, President Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical Center to receive treatment for a non-Covid-related infection,” Clinton’s spokesman, Angel Urena, said in a statement on Thursday evening. “He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care.”
University of California Irvine Medical Center in Orange, Calif., confirmed that Clinton is being treated there, Reuters reported.
A source close to the situation tells Fox News: “It was diagnosed as a urological infection which morphed into a broader infection. As you can see in his statement from his doctors, the prognosis is good and they hope to have him home soon. He’s up and about, joking and charming the hospital staff.”
