“President Clinton is continuing to receive treatment for an infection at UC Irvine Medical Center. All health indicators are trending in the right direction, including his white blood count which has decreased significantly,” Angel Urena, the spokesperson, said in a statement.

“In order to receive further IV antibiotics, he will remain in the hospital overnight,” adding that Clinton “continues to be in excellent spirits.”

Urena said on Thursday that Clinton, 75, was admitted earlier this week for a non-Covid-related infection.

“On Tuesday evening, President Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical Center to receive treatment,” he said in a statement. “He is on the mend, in good spirits, and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care.”

Clinton’s doctors also released a statement.

“He was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring. After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down and he is responding to antibiotics well,” Drs. Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack said in the statement. “The California-based medical team has been in constant communication with the President’s New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist. We hope to have him go home soon.”

He was diagnosed with a urological infection that spread to his bloodstream, a source with knowledge of the situation told NBC News on Friday. The source said that Clinton was up and moving, and that his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, was by his side.

President Joe Biden told reporters on Friday that he spoke to Clinton by phone “to see how he was doing.”

“He’s doing fine. He really is,” Biden said. “He’s not in any serious condition. He is getting out shortly, as I understand.”

A source close to Clinton said Thursday that he’d been in intensive care “as a precautionary measure.” The hospital needed to isolate him and not because his care required it, the source said.

Clinton also has a history of heart problems.

In 2004, Clinton underwent a quadruple bypass operation at New York-Presbyterian Hospital to reroute his blood supply to circumvent four severely clogged arteries, The New York Times reported at the time. Clinton had complained of chest pains and shortness of breath. A team of surgeons then found extensive signs of heart disease, with blockages in some of Clinton’s arteries at well over 90 percent, the newspaper reported.

Clinton returned to New York-Presbyterian Hospital in 2010 to undergo another heart procedure, this time to insert two stents into a coronary artery.

Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton were scheduled to attend a private Clinton Foundation event in California Thursday evening.

Hillary Clinton went to the event to represent them both, according to a person close to Clintons, and then she went to be with her husband in Irvine, which is in Orange County.
