His treatment is coming to an end. The state of health of Algerian President Tebboune, infected with the new coronavirus and hospitalized in Germany, is “constantly improving”, the Algerian presidency announced on Sunday in a statement.
Abdelmadjid Tebboune, 74 years old and a heavy smoker, has been treated in a German specialist hospital since October 28.
The president “is in the process of completing his treatment within the framework of the health protocol, and his state of health is constantly improving,” the statement read.
A first public intervention
Abdelmadjid Tebboune had been transferred urgently to Germany, after the announcement of suspected cases of Covid-19 in his close entourage. He had placed himself in isolation a few days earlier.
On his arrival in Germany, he was immediately admitted to “one of the largest specialized hospitals” in the country to undergo “in-depth medical examinations”, according to the presidency, who did not give further details.
In a second message broadcast on Sunday evening by the presidency, Abdelmadjid Tebboune himself addressed “his warm thanks to the people for their interest in the development of their state of health and for their union around their president”, adding “highly appreciate the prayers and sincere wishes for a speedy recovery”.
His condition “improves”
In this first public intervention since his transfer to Germany, the president wanted to “reassure the Algerian people who are awaiting their return to the country”, affirming “that their state of health is improving”.
He also thanked the leaders, heads of state and government for their wishes for recovery.
His hospitalization abroad prevented Abdelmadjid Tebboune from taking part last Sunday in the referendum on a constitutional revision – one of the flagship projects of the Algerian president – a ballot marked by a record abstention in the history of Algeria and a massive disavowal of the plan.
