ATHENS – The physicians treating Elder Ephraim of Vatopedi considered it necessary to intubate him in the Intensive Care Unit of Evangelismos Hospital in Athens.

It should be noted that Elder Ephraim was transported by air to Athens last Friday in order to be hospitalized after testing positive for the coronavirus. His condition slightly deteriorated, which led to the intubation.

Elder Ephraim is 65 years old and has diabetes and heart disease.

The Monastic Brotherhood of Vatopedi Monastery as well as many acquaintances and friends around the world send their best wishes and prayers for the restoration of his health.
