Nearly a week after putting Hillary Clinton on antibiotics and telling her to rest to fend off a bout of pneumonia, her doctor on Wednesday revealed new details about Mrs. Clinton’s treatment, saying that she “continues to improve” after contracting a “mild, noncontagious” form of the illness that was detected last week with a chest CT scan.
In a letter released by the Clinton campaign, her physician, Dr. Lisa R. Bardack, said she had evaluated Mrs. Clinton several times — including on Wednesday — since the candidate was seen losing her footing on Sunday while leaving a ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
“She is recovering well with antibiotics and rest,” Dr. Bardack said. “She continues to remain healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States.”
The medical disclosures were made amid heightened political pressure that began after Mrs. Clinton felt dizzy on Sunday and departed early from the 9/11 ceremony.
