The Prime Minister's Office released a statement on Sunday afternoon that former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew had been discharged from Singapore's General Hospital and is now resting at home.
The latest short statement posted on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's Facebook page also said that "doctors are following up with [Mr Lee Kuan Yew] to optimise his anti-coagulation therapy, in order to minimise the risk of further Transient Ischaemic Attacks".
Mr Lee Kuan Yew was hospitalised Friday because of an irregular heartbeat that led to a brief stoppage of blood flow to the brain.
He was admitted after experiencing a suspected "Transient Ischaemic Attack (TIA) associated with a prolonged episode of atrial fibrillation" or irregular heartbeat.
TIA happens when blood flow stops briefly to a part of the brain. A person will have stroke-like symptoms which usually clear up in less than 24 hours. - ST/ANN
