It’s all clear for PM Lee and he called it a night at 1.30am today after nearly fainting onstage during the National Day Rally.

The good news was delivered via Facebook by Minister for Foreign Affairs Dr Vivian Balakrishnan at around 10am. Dr Balakrishnan said that PM Lee was “fully conscious” when he fell on stage due to a “vasovagal episode”, showing “classic symptoms and signs – sweatiness, low heart rate and low blood pressure”. After the rally ended, they went to Singapore General Hospital (SGH) where more tests were done on PM Lee. These tests showed that nothing was out of the ordinary and he was in the clear.

Within an hour of surfacing on Facebook, Dr Balakrishnan’s post garnered almost 400 likes and reactions, and many comments wishing for PM Lee’s good health.
