The Algerian presidency announced, on Wednesday evening, that President Abdelmadjid Tebboune (74 years) has been transferred to Germany, for in-depth medical examinations, after he was in a military hospital in the capital.

The presidency added, in a statement, that the transfer of Tebboune was based on the recommendation of the medical staff overseeing his health, according to state television.

The presidency did not announce, in its brief statement, more details about his health condition.

The presidency said, in a statement Tuesday, that the President of the Republic - based on the recommendation of his doctors - entered a specialized unit for treatment at the Central Army Hospital in Ain An-Naaj in Algiers.

The statement did not clarify when Tebboune was admitted to the hospital, but added that his health condition is stable and does not cause any concern. Rather, the president continues his daily activities from the hospital.

On Saturday, the Algerian presidency announced that Tebboune had entered a voluntary quarantine, on the advice of doctors.

Tebboune said at the time that he would isolate himself after a number of his top aides were infected with the Corona virus.

He was quoted as saying at the time, "I assure you, my sisters and brothers, that I am well and healthy, and that I will continue my work."

Tebboune has held the presidency since December 19, 2019, after winning the first presidential elections, following the resignation of Abdelaziz Bouteflika from the presidency (1999: 2019), on April 2 of the same year.

Under pressure popular protests against his rule.
