Albania’s Archbishop Anastasios, an ethnic Greek, is fighting for his life in an Athens hospital, suffering from COVID-19.
The Archbishop of Tirana, Durres and All Albania, Anastasios was transferred on Tuesday to Athens to undergo treatment for “mild symptoms” of COVID-19.
The announcement was made on the Orthodox Churche’s official website.
“After the appearance of mild symptoms of COVID-19, it was deemed appropriate that the Archbishop of Tirana, Durres, and All Albania, Anastasios, be transferred to Athens (to the Annunciation Hospital) for the necessary medical care.”
Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias tweeted his wishes and hoped he will return soon to the residence of the Church of Albania.
