SINGAPORE, March 19. /TASS/. Singapore’s first prime minister Lee Kuan Yew remains in intensive care in a "critical condition," the government said in a statement on Thursday.
The 91-year-old politician was hospitalized on February 5 with acute pneumonia. His elder son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said on Tuesday that the father’s health condition had deteriorated and he was receiving antibiotics.
Hundreds of Singapore citizens and several dozen journalists came to Singapore General Hospital on Thursday morning where the politician is currently warded.
Lee Kuan Yew led Singapore for 31 years (between 1959 and 1990). During his rule, Singapore turned from a "third country" into one of the major financial centres of the world. The republic entered the world’s top three leaders for the quality of life.
