Abbot Ephraim continues to be hospitalized with symptoms of pneumonia in the high-dependency unit of Evangelismos Hospital.
The physicians of the hospital are by his side and take care of him, as the abbot has underlying diseases (diabetes) and heart issues.
According to information from orthodoxtimes.com, the next 48 hours will “tell” the health condition of the abbot, who is very dear to the Mount Athos community and the Orthodox world.
It is reminded that the abbot of Vatopedi Monastery arrived in Athens yesterday to be treated at the COVID clinic of Evangelismos Hospital.
Abbot Ephraim tested positive for COVID-19 a few days ago.
According to information of orthodoxtimes.com, the health condition of the abbot has deteriorated in the last few hours, and for this reason, the people in the administration of Mount Athos considered it necessary to transfer him to Athens, specifically to the Evangelismos Hospital.
