Mr Lee remains critically ill

Former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew remains "critically ill" and his condition has deteriorated further, according to a statement by the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) yesterday.

This comes after the PMO issued an update on Tuesday saying that Mr Lee's condition had worsened due to an infection.

It added that Mr Lee is on antibiotics and doctors are closely monitoring his condition.

Mr Lee, 91, has been hospitalised in the Singapore General Hospital since Feb 5, when he was admitted for severe pneumonia.

On Friday, the PMO said his condition remained "largely unchanged".

Prior to that, the PMO released a statement on Feb 28 saying Mr Lee's condition had improved slightly.
