BANGKOK, Oct. 12 (Xinhua) -- Thailand's 88-year-old King Bhumibol Adulyadej is still in an unstable condition, said the Bureau of the Royal Household in a statement late on Wednesday.

"The king's blood pressure lowered further on Tuesday, his pulse became faster and his blood was more acidic," said the Bureau of the Royal Household.

According to a blood test, the king was infected with virus, and his liver functioned abnormally.

The statement said doctors used medicine to cure the blood pressure problem, put a ventilator on him and applied Continuous Renal Replacement Therapy ( CRRT).

"He is still in a unstable condition in general while doctors are closely monitoring his symptoms," said the statement.

The Thai government has asked the public not to be panic or believe rumors on the king on social media.
