“He was admitted to the hospital under close observation and given IV antibiotics and fluids,” his physicians Alpesh Amin and Lisa Bardack said in a joint statement.

Doctors denied any connection to his history of heart and pulmonary conditions, saying they hoped he can go home soon.

“After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is decreasing and he is responding well to antibiotics,” the doctors said. “The California-based medical team is in constant communication with the President’s New York-based medical team, including his cardiologist. We hope he goes home soon.”

Clinton had quadruple bypass heart surgery in 2004, and in 2010 two stents were inserted into the artery following chest pain and shortness of breath.

Between these years, in 2005, Mr. Clinton had to undergo lung surgery for a partially collapsed lung.

A Democrat, Mr. Clinton served as US President from 1993-2001. He later campaigned for his wife Hillary Clinton in 2008 as she launched an unsuccessful bid for the party’s presidential nomination. And in 2016, Clinton returned to the campaign trail when Clinton was nominated to represent the party in an election won by Donald Trump.
