Samsung Electronics Chairman Lee Kun-hee was transferred to a normal hospital room late Monday, Samsung Medical Center (SMC) said Tuesday.

“All medical checkups have shown that the chairman is very stable. He was moved to a general care unit,” SMC said.

Lee is still under sedation.

The business tycoon had been in the intensive care unit at the hospital for 10 days following a heart attack.
