It was gathered that he was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring, according to a joint statement issued on Thursday evening by the Chairman of Medicine at UC Irvine Medical Center, Dr. Alpesh Amin, and Dr. Lisa Bardack, the primary physician to Clinton. They said Clinton was in the ICU for safety and privacy, and not because he needed intensive care.

Mr Clinton, 75, had previously bypass heart surgery in 2004, and had two stents inserted to open one artery in 2010. Meanwhile, his doctors said his hospitalization is not heart nor COVID-19 related illness.

According to the former President's doctor, urologic infections are very common in older people and they are easily treated.

Meanwhile, there is one biggest challenge that is behind the reason why Mr Clinton is still in the hospital. According to a source familiar with the situation, the kind of antibiotic needed to treat Mr Clinton's type of infection has to be carried out through IV and not orally.
