Mrs Clinton wasn’t feeling well earlier in December and sustained a concussion when she fainted, which was contributed to her having the stomach flu.
The concussion has led to the forming of a blood clot, according to Philippe Reines, a State Department senior advisor.
Reines said that Mrs Clinton, 65, is being treated with anti-coagulants at New York-Presbyterian Hospital in Manhattan. She will be monitored there for the next 48 hours, he said.
“Her doctors will continue to assess her condition, including other issues associated with her concussion,” he said. “They will determine if any further action is required.”
Dr. Lisa Bardack of Mount Kisco Medical Group and Dr. Gigi El-Bayoumi of George Washington University provided more information about Mrs Clinton’s condition:
“Secretary Clinton developed a stomach virus, leading to extreme dehydration, and subsequently fainted. Over the course of this week we evaluated her and ultimately determined she had also sustained a concussion. We recommended that the Secretary continue to rest and avoid any strenuous activity, and strongly advised her to cancel all work events for the coming week. We will continue to monitor her progress as she makes a full recovery.”
Mrs Clinton passed out once before while sick with a stomach bug. In 2005, she fainted during a speech in Buffalo New York after complaining of a stomach virus.
