Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday, according to her campaign.
In a statement released Sunday after Mrs. Clinton collapsed at a Sept. 11 memorial event in New York, Dr. Lisa Bardack said she made the diagnosis while examining the candidate’s recent coughing incidents.
The former first lady “was diagnosed with pneumonia. She was put on antibiotics, and advised to rest and modify her schedule,” Dr. Bardack said in a statement released by the campaign Sunday afternoon.
Dr. Bardack repeated the campaign’s earlier explanation for the collapse — that Mrs. Clinton “became overheated and dehydrated” with the temperature in the low-80s.
