The health of the Abbot of the Vatopedi monastery, Ephraim, suddenly deteriorated last night.
The Abbot, who was admitted to the “Evaggelismos” Hospital on May 28 and remains intubated since June 4, has been showing signs of improvement in recent days since the fever had subsided.
However, according to information from orthodoxtimes.com, last night there was a sudden deterioration of his health.
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.
