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.
