According to a report from People Magazine, the bout of pneumonia that made Hillary Clinton seriously ill during a 9/11 memorial service Sunday has been making its way throughout the campaign, making several of her top staffers sick as well.
“Everyone’s been sick,” a source told them bluntly. At least six people got seriously ill, they said, including campaign manager Robby Mook.
The illness was bad enough to require two top advisors to seek emergency treatment. “One top adviser diagnosed at a Brooklyn urgent-care center with a respiratory infection was being treated with antibiotics in the days before Clinton’s diagnosis. Another top adviser was taken by ambulance to the ER… after collapsing from what turned out to be severe dehydration, the source said,” People reports.
Clinton was diagnosed with pneumonia Friday. The campaign kept the diagnosis under wraps until Clinton’s collapse Sunday forced their hand.
