Mr Lee Kuan Yew still warded at SGH, closely monitored by doctors

26Feb15

Lee Kuan Yew apparently remains alive, barely.  ST:

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) on Thursday 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 flew on social media that Mr Lee had died, but government sources told The Straits Times that these were untrue.

  1. 1 Former Singaporean

    Following three weeks of stay in a hospital, under intensive care from medical specialists, majority of Singaporeans would wish to be dead because of the resulting financial hardship / burden caused to themselves and their family .. such is the meriticratic system created by the dying despot ..

  2. 2 The Old Man Is Already In Hell

    The supreme irony is that his family members choose to torture him on “life support”, rather than pull the plug to end his misery … LOL

  3. 3 LY Lim

    Ironically he is in every sense a supreme leader. Although not perfect but supreme no doubt. A man who dares to stand in public and get the job done, in a certain sense the “life support” to the nation.

    Carry on LOL and you may just find yourself to be the old man who is already in hell, tortured and wishing someone can pull the plug on you. Sigh.
