Aljunied GRC MP and former Workers’ Party (WP) Secretary-General Low Thia Khiang has been transferred to a general ward after being admitted in the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) for five days.
This was announced by the party earlier today (5 May) on its Facebook page along with a statement posted on its official website.
“After 5 days in ICU, Mr Low was transferred on 4 May to a general ward, where he is likely to remain for a few more weeks to recuperate,” the party wrote.
The party added that his family “has asked us to convey their deep appreciation for all the good wishes sent to him for a speedy recovery”.
In an earlier statement on Saturday (2 May), WP stated that Mr Low suffered a head injury from a fall at home on 30 April, and was placed in ICU to be monitored.
“Mr Low is conscious. Mr Low’s family has requested for privacy so he can focus on his recuperation,” the party said.
It added that in Mr Low’s absence from work, the Workers’ Party Aljunied GRC MPs will cover his constituency duties, assisted by former Non-Constituency Member of Parliament (NCMP) Gerald Giam.
