Former U.S. president GEORGE H.W. BUSH has been hospitalised due to pneumonia.
The 92-year-old was taken to Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas on Friday (14Apr17), his spokesman Jim McGrath confirmed.
“President George H. W. Bush was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital on Friday for observation due to a persistent cough that prevented him from getting proper rest,” McGrath said in a statement issued on Twitter.
“It was subsequently determined he had a mild case of pneumonia, which was treated and has been resolved. President Bush is in very good spirits and is being held for further observation while he regains his strength.”
Bush, who served as America’s leader from 1989 to 1993, was also hospitalised with pneumonia in January (17), causing him to miss the inauguration of the current U.S. president, Donald Trump.
As well as leading America, Bush also served as President Ronald Reagan’s Vice President, and is the father of former U.S. president, George W. Bush.
