A 16-year-old Singaporean is in critical condition at National University Hospital (NUH) after he collapsed at home on the morning on Saturday (Jul. 3). He had received his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Jun. 27.

Should it be "in the morning" instead?

Thanks!

I'd phrase it :

"A 16-year-old Singaporean is in critical condition at National University Hospital (NUH) after collapsing at home on the morning of Saturday (Jul. 3). He had received his first dose of the Covid-19 vaccine on Jun. 27."

I agree with "on the morning of". This is usually how it is used, the sense of it being that it happened "on" that day and date.

"in" would be used when speaking of the time it occurred, such as "He collapsed "in" the early morning hours of Saturday, Jun. 27".

Yes
The time was 'in the morning'. The day was 'on Saturday' .


The date and time was
'on the morning of Saturday 17th July' .

We use "in" with morning, afternoon, evening and night, but we use "on" when we talk about a specific morning, afternoon, etc., or when we describe the part of the day.

You are correct! It shouldn't be in the morning, but on the morning, like this: 'on the morning on Wednesday.'

"Like" is correct, not "such as".
