Update on the health of HE Metropolitan Bakhomios

Update on the health of His Eminence Metropolitan Bakhomios of Boheira and Pentapolis by His Grace Bishop Angaelos, General Bishop of the Coptic Orthodox Church in the United Kingdom

His Eminence Metropolitan Bakhomios of Boheira and Pentapolis, and former Locum Tenens of the Coptic Orthodox Church, was transported by air ambulance from Cairo to England on 27 August 2014, after which he was transferred and admitted to a London hospital for treatment. His Eminence was accompanied by His Grace Bishop Biemen of Quos and Naqada.
Physicians overseeing the treatment of His Eminence, including Professors Michael Henein and George Hanna report the following:

“Metropolitan Bakhomios was transferred from Egypt to England, because of resistant fever and disturbed consciousness. He underwent detailed investigations which confirmed the diagnosis of meningio-encephalitis caused by West Nile virus. He is currently receiving supportive care and treatment and has already shown signs of slight partial improvement. This disease varies in its prognosis between patients.”

We pray for his speedy recovery, that he may return to his diocese, his flock, and to the whole Church at the earliest possible time.

Visits are still currently not permitted on medical advice.
