Four days after nearly fainting at the 9/11 memorial in New York City as a result of pneumonia, Hillary Clinton on Thursday made her first appearance since the incident, looking fully recovered and vowing to carry on with her campaign.

"As you may know, I recently had a cough that turned out to be pneumonia," Clinton said jokingly as she spoke in Greensboro, North Carolina. "I tried to power through it but even I had to admit that maybe a few days of rest would do me good. I’m not great at taking it easy under even normal circumstances but with just two months until Election Day, sitting at home was pretty much the last place I wanted to be."

The Democratic presidential nominee then spoke of a renewed understanding of what her campaign was about. "People like me, we’re lucky," she said. "When I’m under the weather, I can afford to take a few days off. But millions of Americans can't. They either go to work sick or they lose a paycheck, don’t they? Lots of Americans still don’t even have health insurance, or they do but it’s too expensive for them to actually use."
