New York: Former president Bill Clinton arrived at his home in New York to continue recovering from an infection that left him in treatment for six days at a Southern California hospital, officials said. The former president left the University of California Irvine Medical Center with Hillary Clinton on his arm.

Bill Clinton’s “fever and white blood cell count are normalized, and he will return home to New York to finish his course of antibiotics,” said Dr. Alpesh N. Amin. According to a report, Amin, who had been overseeing his care at the hospital, said that Clinton would finish his course of antibiotics at home in New York.

We “will continue to monitor his progress,” the Indian American doctor added in the statement. Amin, executive director of hospital medicine at UC Irvine Health, said in a statement: "On behalf of everyone at UC Irvine Medical Center, we were honored to have treated him and will continue to monitor his progress.”

Clinton, 75, was admitted to the hospital southeast of Los Angeles with an infection unrelated to Covid-19. He arrived at his home in Chappaqua, New York, to continue his recovery. Hillary Clinton had been with her husband at the hospital and was accompanied by daughter Chelsea.
