SINGAPORE: Former Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew was admitted to Singapore General Hospital on Saturday after experiencing a suspected transient ischaemic attack associated with a prolonged episode of atrial fibrillation, or irregular heartbeat.
A statement from the Prime Minister’s office said Mr Lee has recovered but will remain warded for a few days for the doctors to adjust his medication and for observation.
A transient ischaemic attack happens when blood flow to a part of the brain stops for a brief period of time.
The patient will have stroke—like symptoms, which clear in less than 24 hours.
Supporters quickly posted messages on the Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s Facebook page, wishing his father a speedy recovery.
