King of Thailand Recovers from Respiratory Infection

BANGKOK – Thai King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the world’s longest-reigning monarch, has recovered from a respiratory infection, according to the latest statement from the Royal Family’s medical team.

In the statement issued on Sunday night, the doctors stated that the 88-year-old King has no longer a fever and his blood infection has eased.

Furthermore, an X-ray found no infection in the lungs and so the medical team has stopped administering antibiotics.

They added that the monarch still has only minimal urine production, and that they are keeping a close watch on his kidneys.

King Bhumibol remains in the Siriraj Hospital in Bangkok, where he has been almost uninterruptedly since he was admitted a year ago.

The Royal Household has issued 35 press releases since the King’s hospitalization, the last four in the last week after the king suffered a severe infection.

The last public appearance of the monarch was on Jan. 11, when he paid a visit to the Royal Chitralada Palace for a few hours.

King Bhumibol’s health condition is a taboo subject in the country due to the Lèse-majesté laws which shields the Royal Family against all kinds of accusations and comments.

Bhumibol, on the throne since June 9, 1946, is the only King most Thais know and is revered as an almost divine being, a symbol of unity and guide of the nation.
