US Minister Lloyd Austin Hospitalized in Intensive Care for Another Time

U.S. Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin has been hospitalized in the intensive care unit at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Virginia for a bladder problem, and has transferred duties to her deputy, Kathleen Hicks. The Pentagon announced this, adding that it is not yet clear how long she will remain in hospital. Austin was diagnosed with prostate cancer last December and underwent surgery, but her secret hospitalization raised controversy in the U.S. Initially kept hidden even from President Joe Biden, her condition worsened and she was later hospitalized again on January 1 due to complications.
