    Lee Kuan Yew still in intensive care at SGH

    FORMER prime minister Lee Kuan Yew remains warded in the intensive care unit at the Singapore General Hospital (SGH), according to a statement from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) yesterday morning.

    Mr Lee is still sedated and on mechanical ventilation, the statement said.

    It added that Mr Lee's doctors have restarted him on antibiotics, and are continuing to monitor him closely.

    Mr Lee, 91, was admitted to SGH on Feb 5 with severe pneumonia.

    The PMO had said on Saturday that his condition was stable, although he remained in intensive care.

    On Wednesday night, rumours circulated on social media that Mr Lee had died, but government sources told The Straits Times that these were untrue.
