Hillary Clinton’s personal doctor revealed on Sunday that the Democratic candidate was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.
The doctor’s statement came hours after Clinton drew attention for abruptly leaving a 9/11 memorial event at Ground Zero and was seen on video apparently being assisted getting into a van.
Dr. Lisa Bardack, Clinton’s personal doctor, in a statement released by the campaign said that the candidate, “has been experiencing a cough related to allergies,” and that she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday “during follow up evaluation of her prolonged cough.”
Clinton was being treated with antibiotics and had been “advised to rest and modify her schedule,” the doctor said.
Reiterating the campaign’s earlier statement, the doctor said that Clinton left the 9/11 memorial event because, “she became overheated and dehydrated.”
“She is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely,” Bardack said, saying that she had recently examined her.
