On Thursday, CNN reported that former President Bill Clinton was admitted to the hospital in California for a "blood infection."

"He is still in the hospital, we understand," said anchor Chris Cuomo as he reported the news live. "What are we supposed to make of this?"

"He went in on Tuesday," said CNN medical analyst Dr. Sanjay Gupta. "I've spoken to members of his staff and also to his doctors. He was not feeling well all day Tuesday. He was in California for an event related to his foundation, was not feeling well, was taken to the hospital, University of California, Irvine. At that point was tested. As you mentioned, not COVID-related. Also seemingly not related to his heart — he's had heart surgery, as you know, in the past, including a heart operation in 2004 and a stent in 2010."

"What they think is going on with the former president now is a blood infection, sometimes known as sepsis," said Gupta. "What they are saying is he is responding well to antibiotics, he's been increasingly mobile, able to get up and around. He was joking with hospital staff, seems to be in good spirits. They say they'll continue those antibiotics at least another day, remain in the hospital at least another day, and at that point reassess."
