ORANGE, California — Bill Clinton is released today from the Southern California hospital where he had been treated for an infection.

The former US president is released around 8 a.m. local time from the University of California Irvine Medical Center.

Clinton, 75, was admitted Tuesday to the hospital southeast of Los Angeles with an infection unrelated to COVID-19, officials said.

Clinton spokesman Angel Ureña had said yesterday that Clinton would remain hospitalized one more night to receive further intravenous antibiotics. But all health indicators were “trending in the right direction,” Ureña said.

An aide to the former president said Clinton had a urological infection that spread to his bloodstream.
