SINGAPORE: Former prime minister Lee Kuan Yew's condition remains largely unchanged since the last update on Feb 28, the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said on Friday. 

Doctors are continuing to monitor his condition, according to the Singapore's PM's Office. 

On Feb 28, the PMO said in a statement that Lee remained sedated and was on mechanical ventilation in the Intensive Care Unit at Singapore General Hospital (SGH). 

He was also continuing with his antibiotics, the statement had said. 

Lee, 91, was admitted to SGH on Feb 5 with severe pneumonia.

The Singapore's first prime minister, who helmed the government from 1959 to 1990, is regarded as one of the longest serving premiers in the world.  – The Straits Times/ANN/BERNAMA
