There are positive news concerning the health of Abbot Ephraim of the Vatopaidi Monastery, who was admitted to the Evangelismos Hospital on the 28th of May. According to orthodoxtimes.gr sources, the Abbot remains intubated, but his fever has subsided.
Ιn the last few days, the treating physicians are cautiously optimistic about Abbot Ephraim’s health, as for a few days his body has been responding to medication.
The well-known abbot in the Orthodox world, who turned 65 years old on June 5, has remained intubated since the day that the treating physicians judged that the level of oxygen in his body was dangerously low.
The team of physicians overseeing Abbot Ephraim has been in constant communication with the Ecumenical Patriarchate and the administration of Mount Athos.
It should be noted here that the same medical team monitoring Abbot Ephraim was also close to Archbishops Anastasios of Albania and Ieronymos of Athens when they hospitalized in the same hospital with coronavirus.
