Bill Clinton was released from a hospital in Southern California on Sunday after being treated for an infection.

Around 8 a.m., the former US president was released from the University of California Medical Center in Irvine.

According to officials, Clinton, 75, was hospitalized to a hospital south of Los Angeles on Tuesday with an infection unconnected to Covid-19.

On Saturday, Clinton's spokeswoman, Angela Urena, said that Clinton would stay in the hospital for another night to receive additional intravenous antibiotics. All health indicators, however, were "trending in the right direction," according to Urena.

Clinton had a urinary illness that extended to his bloodstream, according to a former aide.

In the years since leaving the White House in 2001, Clinton has had several health scares.

After suffering from chest problems and shortness of breath for a long time, he underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2004. In 2005, he went to the hospital for surgery on a partially collapsed lung, and in 2010, he had a pair of coronary stents placed.

Concerns over Clinton's health prompted him to adopt a primarily vegan diet, which has helped him shed weight and improve his health.
