“His fever and white blood cell count are normalized and he will return home to New York to finish his course of antibiotics,” the hospital’s senior physician, Dr. Alpesh Amin said in a statement released by Clinton’s spokesperson.

This is not the first health scare for Clinton, who underwent quadruple bypass surgery in 2004, and had stents placed in his coronary artery six years later.
