Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, 87, has been hospitalized for a “possible infection” after experiencing a fever and chills.
“Justice Ginsburg was admitted to The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland early this morning for treatment of a possible infection,” the Supreme Court said in a statement. “She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. last night after experiencing fever and chills.”
“She underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins this afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that last was placed last August,” the statement added. “The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment.”
Ginsburg has been hospitalized with health problems numerous times in recent months including once in May for an infection she sustained from a gallbladder condition and once in November after experiencing flu-like symptoms.
The Daily Wire previously highlighted Ginsburg’s numerous battles with cancer:
In 1999, Ginsburg was diagnosed with colon cancer and had to undergo surgery. In 2009, Ginsburg underwent surgery for early-stage pancreatic cancer. In 2018, Ginsburg underwent surgery to remove two cancerous nodules from her left lung. In 2019, underwent three weeks of radiation treatment to treat a localized cancerous tumor on her pancreas.
