Well-wishers gather to pray Thursday at Siriraj Hospital.

BANGKOK — Government spokesman Lt. Gen. Sansern Kaewkamnerd denied Thursday that the interim cabinet would hold a special meeting at 5pm after word of it spread on social media.

When asked whether the palace would issue any statement later Thursday afternoon regarding His Majesty the King’s health, the spokesman declined to comment.
“I should not be answering this question,” he said.
