Video Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin back in the hospital - ABC News

US Defence Secretary, Lloyd Austin has delegated duties to his deputy following his admission to a medical facility for an emergent bladder issue.

The Pentagon noted that White House and senior officials had been informed that the 70-year-old Defense Secretary would remain at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Virginia for treatment.

The disclosure follows previous scrutiny for failing to disclose his prostate cancer diagnosis and hospital stays in December and January.

It is unclear if his latest medical challenge would affect his scheduled high-level visit to Brussels for a Wednesday meeting on the ongoing war in Ukraine.
