Clinton releases updated health information; Doc says she’s ‘healthy, fit to serve as President’

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) – Hillary Clinton’s doctor says she is recovering from her pneumonia and remains “healthy and fit to serve as President of the United States.”

The statement was part of medical information Clinton’s campaign released Wednesday after her pneumonia diagnosis last week.

The campaign says that Clinton’s physician found that the remainder of the Democratic presidential nominee’s complete physical exam was “normal” and she is in “excellent mental condition.”

The campaign says the additional information explains that a Clinton got a chest scan Friday that showed a “mild, non-contagious bacterial pneumonia.” Clinton was treated with an antibiotic called Levaquin, which she was prescribed for 10 days.

Clinton’s doctor has evaluated her several times since she became dehydrated at Sunday’s 9/11 memorial event in New York City. Dr. Lisa Bardack saw Clinton on Wednesday and says through the campaign that the Democratic presidential nominee “continues to improve” after a few days of rest.

Dr. Lisa Bardack adds that Clinton is “recovering well with antibiotics and rest” after she became overheated, dehydrated and felt dizzy at a 9/11 memorial ceremony on Sunday.

Clinton’s aides say she’ll return to the campaign trail on Thursday.
