Thailand’s Queen Sirikit in Hospital with Lung Inflammation

BANGKOK – Queen Sirikit of Thailand has been admitted to a hospital in Bangkok with lung inflammation, a month after the death of her husband, King Bhumibol Adulyadej, the royal palace said.

The queen was admitted on Wednesday to the Chulalongkorn Hospital in the capital with fever and a blood test had pointed to an inflammation, the royal palace said in a statement on Thursday night.

An x-ray had confirmed an inflammation in the queen’s lungs and she was treated with antibiotics, following which her fever dropped and she was able to breathe normally, according to the statement.

Sirikit, 83, drastically reduced her public appearances after taking ill due to reduced blood flow to her brain in 2012 and has spent much of her time since then in hospital.

The queen’s bout of poor health comes after the end of the first month of the one-year-long official mourning for King Bhumibol, who passed away on Oct. 13, aged 88 years, after reigning for seven decades.

The royal couple married on April 28, 1950, seven days before Bhumibol was crowned King of Thailand.

The health condition of Thai monarchs 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.
