The Algerian presidency said Thursday that the health status of President Abdelmadjid Tebboune is stable, and that "there is no reason to worry," a day after he traveled to Germany for medical examinations.
The presidency said in a statement that "his medical team is optimistic about the results of the tests."
Tebboune, 75, was admitted to a military hospital in Algeria, after a number of his senior advisers were tested positive for the Corona virus.
The president was subjected to voluntary quarantine for several days.
The Algerian president’s illness came a few days before a popular referendum on a constitution that is supposed to establish a "new Algeria", as it was stated in its preamble, and to fulfill the demands of the movement.
The referendum will be held on the first of next November.
Abdel-Majid Tebboune was born on November 17, 1945 in Mashria, in the Naama state in the southwest of Algeria, and held several state and ministerial positions in various governments.
