The messages of the doctors about the health of Abbot Ephraim of the Vatopaidi Monastery are very encouraging.
According to orthodoxtimes.com sources, Abbot Ephraim is responding to the medication given to him by the doctors of the “Evangelismos” hospital, where he has been treated since May 28 (from June 4 intubated).
Abbot Ephraim underwent a tracheostomy today and shows that he is facing the germ that afflicts him, as well as the septic shock he suffered a few days ago.
The wishes of all are the speedy recovery of Abbot Ephraim and to return to his duties.
The doctors give their best and make every effort to stabilize Abbot’s state of health.
The Ecumenical Patriarchate and the administration of Mount Athos are in constant contact with the physicians of the hospital.
It should be noted that the same medical team that monitors Abbot Ephraim, was also close to Archbishops Anastasios of Albania and Ieronymos of Athens when they hospitalized in the same hospital with coronavirus.
