NSman dies after liver failure caused by an unknown virus

A 22-year-old Singaporean NSman died after suffering from acute liver failure caused by an unknown virus. On May 1, Hoo Shuwei came down with a high fever and was later admitted to the Singapore General Hospital (SGH). His liver cells started to deteriorate and after a few days, he was diagnosed with liver failure and his kidneys were also affected. The SGH said Shuwei was put on the priority list for transplant, but he died before a donor was available. Doctors advised the public to seek immediate treatment if they suffer from a high fever for more than 24 hours without any other symptoms. EVELYN LAM
