Bill Clinton Hospitalized With Sepsis
Former President Clinton has been hospitalized since Tuesday with an infection, of the non-COVID variety.
Two sources say Clinton was hospitalized due to sepsis. Another source said that Clinton is doing well and is currently in the ICU for privacy reasons.
The former president was admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center. A spokesperson said Clinton is "on the mend" and "in good spirits."

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sepsis is an extreme response to an infection and is a life-threatening medical emergency.
Infections that can cause sepsis often start in the lungs, urinary tract, skin or gastrointestinal tract. Without treatment, it can swiftly lead to organ failure and death. People over the age of 65, those with weakened immune systems and individuals with chronic medical conditions are at a higher risk of developing sepsis.
