Hillary Clinton was suffering from pneumonia when she quickly departed a Sept. 11 memorial ceremony in New York City on Sunday, according to her doctor, an episode that may intensify calls for a fuller release of both candidates’ medical records.
Clinton attended the ceremony for an hour and 30 minutes before “she felt so overheated” she departed for her daughter’s apartment, her spokesman Nick Merrill, said in a statement. The candidate later exited the apartment saying “I’m feeling great” before leaving for her home in Chappaqua, N.Y.
Once she returned home, Clinton was examined by her physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, who issued a statement saying that the Democratic nominee has been experiencing a cough related to allergies. On Friday, she was diagnosed with pneumonia and is now on antibiotics and advised to rest and modify her schedule, said Bardack.
“While at this morning’s event, she became overheated and dehydrated. I have just examined her and she is now re-hydrated and recovering nicely,” Bardick said in the statement.
