"President Clinton was taken to UC Irvine Medical Center and diagnosed with an infection. He was admitted to the hospital for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids," the physicians explained. "He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring. After two days of treatment, his white blood cell count is trending down, and he is responding to antibiotics well."

Amin and Bardack continued their joint statement claiming they "hope to have him go home soon."

"The California-based medical team has been in constant communication with the President's new York-based medical team, including his cardiologist. We hope to have him go home soon," they concluded.

CNN Chris Cuomo announced the news on top of his show Thursday. Medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta said after speaking to Clinton's medical team, he found out that the former president started feeling unwell and tired while he attended an event of the Clinton Foundation in California on Tuesday.

"What they think is going on with the former president now is a blood infection. Sometimes known as sepsis," Gupta confirmed.

Gupta also shared that he was told the former Governor of Arkansas is "mobile and can get himself up and around." Clinton was even joking around with hospital staff as of Thursday.

Clinton could be released from the medical institution as early as Friday.

According to the doctors, Clinton's admission to the hospital is not caused by any heart-related problems despite Clinton's past medical records involving heart surgery, including an operation in 2004 and stent placement in 2010.
