Singapore: The health condition of Singapore`s Lee Kuan Yew 'has worsened', the government said Saturday, as the critically ill founding leader of the city-state entered his seventh week in hospital.

The 91-year-old Lee has been in the Singapore General Hospital since February 5 suffering severe pneumonia and is being helped to breathe using mechanical ventilation, a form of life support.

The government said this week that his condition had deteriorated.

In another statement on Saturday, the office of his son Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong said: "Mr. Lee Kuan Yew`s condition has worsened."

The patriarch has been credited with transforming the tiny island-state from an economic backwater into one of the world`s richest societies in just over three decades.
