Clinton had been brought to the hospital's intensive care unit for close monitoring and was given antibiotics and fluids, CNN quoted from a joint statement by Clinton's family doctor Lisa Bardach and Alpesh Amin, a doctor at Irvine Medical Center. "After two days of treatment, the number of white blood cells drops and he responds well to the antibiotics." The urinary tract infection has spread in his bloodstream.
