Cautiously optimistic are the treating physicians about the state of health of Abbot Ephraim, as in the last hours he responded to the medication.
According to medical sources of orthodoxtimes.com, the situation remains extremely serious as the Abbot is still intubated.
However, the fever has begun to subside and there are constant and slight signs of improvement in his health.
As orthodoximes.com reported earlier, doctors estimate that the next hours and days are very critical not only for the development of his health but also for the effects it can have on his body in general and in the future when he manages to emerge victorious from this adventure as everyone wishes.
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, were responsible for the Archbishops Anastasios of Albania and Ieronymos of Athens when they were also treated with coronavirus at the same hospital.
