Former president Bill Clinton was admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center on Tuesday with a “non-COVID-related” infection. Clinton’s spokesperson Angel Ureña said in a statement that the 75-year-old is “on the mend, in good spirits and is incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses, and staff providing him with excellent care.”
Bill Clinton has been hospitalized after he had a urological infection that developed into sepsis, an aide said on Thursday. The aide said it was not considered to be acute.

What people are saying?
phoebesaid Sepsis, by definition, is acute. CDC: Sepsis is the body’s extreme response to an infection. It is a life-threatening medical emergency. Sepsis happens when an infection you already have triggers a chain reaction throughout your body. #Sepsis kills 1 in 5 people globally.
Comm Miser I think it’s likely that the aide who said it was not acute doesn‘t actually know what acute means. Non-medical people who get medical vocabulary from TV dramas tend to think it means “serious.”
