The crowd of well-wishers praying for His Majesty the King continued to swell outside Siriraj Hospital as his loving subjects also gathered at government offices nationwide for prayers on Thursday.
Concerned about reports on His Majesty the King's health, a steady stream of people was arriving at Siriraj Hospital, many from outlying provinces. Well-wishers gave alms to Buddhist monks at the hospital in the morning, making merit for the King.
Their prayers for the good health of His Majesty continued to be the main activity throughout the day.
HRH Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn, HRH Crown Prince Maha Vajiralongkorn, HRH Princess Soamsawali and HRH Princess Chulabhorn are already at the hospital in Bangkok Noi district.
In Bangkok people wrote their names and best wishes for the King's recovery in books at the Sahathai Samakom Pavilion in the Grand Palace.
Government organisations were holding gatherings for their officials to pray for His Majesty's health.
With most people clearly unable to travel to Bangkok, interior permanent secretary Grisada Boonrach ordered the proper arrangement of places at provincial halls, district offices and local administrative organisation offices nationwide for people to sign books sending their best wishes to His Majesty the King and praying for his good health.
People were reported to be gathering in all provinces.
