The Democrats candidate in United States Presidential election Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, her doctor said in a statement Sunday after the Democratic nominee left a 9/11 memorial ceremony due to what her campaign said was overheating.
“Secretary Clinton has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough, she was diagnosed with pneumonia,” her doctor, Lisa Bardack, said. “She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule. While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely.”
Bardack examined Clinton at her home in Chappaqua after she returned from New York City on Sunday afternoon.
Clinton is due in California for a series of fundraisers on Monday and Tuesday.
A senior Clinton aide said her upcoming campaign trip to California is currently under discussion. Clinton is due in both San Francisco and Los Angeles over Monday and Tuesday.
People who were due to see her on this West Coast trip said they had not heard from the campaign about its status as of early Sunday evening.
Mrs. Clinton, who went to her daughter’s New York City apartment after leaving the memorial, walked out unassisted from the building about two hours later and waved at the waiting cameras. “I’m feeling great,” she said. “It’s a beautiful day in New York.”
