Hillary Clinton diagnosed with pneumonia, cancels California trip
has cancelled a two-day trip to California starting from Monday after the Democratic presidential candidate was diagnosed with pneumonia and has been advised to rest by her doctor.
The cancellation was confirmed by her campaign on Sunday night following Clinton’s abrupt departure from a ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in downtown Manhattan because she felt “overheated”, The Hill daily reported.
She was supposed to campaign in San Francisco and Los Angeles and was scheduled to make an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
The former secretary of state’s doctor, Lisa R Bardack released a statement revealing the diagnosis on Sunday evening, The Hill daily reported.
Bardack said Clinton had an examination at her home in Chappaqua after the incident, which was a result of dehydration and overheating.
She said the presidential candidate was “re-hydrated and recovering nicely”.
