    Mr Lee's health gets worse

    FORMER prime minister Lee Kuan Yew's condition has worsened due to an infection, according to a statement from the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) yesterday.

    Mr Lee, 91, is on antibiotics and doctors are closely monitoring his condition, the PMO added.

    The former prime minister has been warded at the Singapore General Hospital since Feb 5, when he was hospitalised for severe pneumonia. The last update on Mr Lee's health was on Friday, when the PMO said his condition remained "largely unchanged".

    Before that, the PMO had issued a statement on Feb 28 saying Mr Lee's condition had improved slightly.
