The Supreme Court justice began the treatment in May, in response to a recurrence of cancer.
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg is receiving chemotherapy to treat a recurrence of cancer, the Supreme Court said Friday.
Ginsburg began the treatment in May, she said in a statement released by the court. She said that it “is yielding positive results” and that she intends to remain on the court, “as long as I can do the job full steam. I remain fully able to do that.”
She has been hospitalized several times recently for unrelated reasons. In May, she received treatment for a benign gallbladder condition.
Earlier this week, she had a possible infection and underwent an operation to clean out a bile duct stent that was inserted last year.

According to Adobe Analytics, US click-and-collect orders – both kerbside and in-store pick-up – surged 208% between 1 April and 20 April, compared to a year ago. Although this pace of growth has since slowed as shops have begun to reopen, adoption remains high, indicating that many people who tried these services while shops were closed are likely to continue to use them after they reopen. Adobe researchers also found that 23% of online shoppers prefer some form of click-and-collect over having orders delivered to their homes.
