Nearly two years after Janet Yellen’s “dehydration” event during a speech in Boston, when in September 2015 the Fed Chair slurred her speech for several minutes before getting medial attention, moments ago the Fed disclosed that the Fed Chair had been hospitalized in London over the weekend for a urinary tract infection, although she has since recovered and is expected to “resume her schedule as planned this week”.

Federal Reserve Chair Janet L. Yellen was treated at King Edward VII hospital in London over the weekend for a urinary tract infection. She was admitted Friday and released Monday. She is returning to Washington, D.C., and expects to resume her schedule as planned this week.
Chair Yellen was in London for an event Tuesday, June 27, at the British Academy and stayed in London for a brief vacation with her family.
As a reminder, Yellen’s next semi-annual Humphrey Hawkins speech is scheduled to take place on July 12.
