SINGAPORE: The Singapore General Hospital (SGH) has designated an area outside Block 7, near the Bengawan Solo cake shop, for well-wishers to leave tributes for former Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. 

Several Singaporeans and foreigners have been visiting SGH to leave bouquets and get-well cards for Lee, 91, who is in the hospital's Intensive Care Unit. 

Lee remains "critically ill", said the Prime Minister's Office in a statement on Friday afternoon. 

Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong also thanked the public for their good wishes. 

He has been visiting Lee, his father, daily over the last few days and is expected to visit again on Friday. 

The elder Lee was hospitalised on Feb 5 at SGH for severe pneumonia.  - The Straits Times/Asia New Network
