Former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew has been discharged from hospital after recovering from a strokelike condition, the Singapore government said on Sunday.
Mr. Lee, 89 years old, was “resting at home” after being discharged from Singapore General Hospital, where he was admitted Friday after suffering a suspected transient ischemic attack that was associated with an irregular heartbeat, the prime minister’s office said in a brief statement. It didn’t say when Mr. Lee left hospital.
A transient ischemic attack, also known as a “mini-stroke,” is a temporary blockage of blood flow to the brain that leads to strokelike symptoms. …
“The doctors are following up with him to optimize his anticoagulation therapy, in order to minimize the risk of further transient ischemic attacks,” the statement said.
The prime minister’s office announced Mr. Lee’s hospitalization on Saturday, saying he had recovered and was being kept under observation.
