Clinton ‘doing fine,’ will be out of hospital shortly, Biden says


ORANGE, CALIF.—Hillary and Chelsea Clinton arrived Saturday morning at the Southern California hospital where Bill Clinton is recovering after being treated for an infection.

The former president is doing fine and will be released soon from the University of California Irvine Medical Center, U.S. President Joe Biden said Friday night.

Biden said during remarks at the University of Connecticu­t that he had spoken to Clinton and the former president “sends his best.”

“He’s doing fine; he really is,” Biden said. “He’s not in any serious condition. He is getting out shortly, as I understand it. Whether that’s tomorrow or the next day, I don’t know.”

Hillary Clinton has been with her husband at the hospital southeast of Los Angeles. Chelsea Clinton was with her mother around 8 a.m. Saturday.

Clinton, 75, was admitted on Tuesday with an infection unrelated to COVID-19, his spokespers­on said.

An aide to the former president said Clinton had a urological infection that spread to his bloodstrea­m, but he is on the mend and never went into septic shock.
