His Majesty the King has had occasional low fever, and taken less foods intakes, and now been given medications and asked to refrain from royal duties, said the 59th Royal Household Bureau statement, released Tuesday night.The King reported pains in both knees just Tuesday, and the royal physicians found that they had swollen. An examination and a blood test later show no signs of bacterial infection at the knees before medications have been administered.
The low fever has persisted for about a week and the King has experienced a bit weakness. The King reported no pains at other body parts. Previous examinations showed regular rates of heartbeats and blood pressure. A chest examination also showed no signs of irregularities, said the statement, quoting the royal physicians.
The monarch has still shown signs of a bit weakness and eaten less, and as a result, the physicians have advised him to refrain from duties until further notice, said the statement.
