The US press announced the "mysterious disappearance" of the President of Algeria

December 19, 2020 will mark exactly one year since Abdelmajid Tebuna took office as President of Algeria. However, since he contracted COVID-19 and was taken to Germany for treatment, almost nothing is known about him. In fact, the 75-year-old head of state "mysteriously disappeared" six weeks ago, according to the American news agency Associated Press.

On November 30, the administration of the Algerian president announced that the head of state was being treated in one of the specialized medical institutions. He is recovering and will return home "in the coming days."

This statement only added mystery around Tebun and made people worry about the continuation of reforms in the country. There is still no information where exactly the head of the largest state in Africa is and is being treated and what is the real state of his health. Algerian officials never released this information. They continue the tradition of secrecy and secrecy established under the authoritarian Abdelaziz Boutefliki, the US agency noted.

Note that on November 3, the administration of the Algerian leader reported that testing for COVID-19 gave a positive result. Moreover, Reuters found out that Tebun is a heavy smoker and arrived in Germany at the end of October 2020. This happened immediately after one of the employees of his administration was diagnosed with the coronavirus.

Then the Algerian authorities confirmed that the President of the country was being treated in one of the clinics of Germany. However, they said that his health is improving.

    Considering the long absence of information about the state of health of the Algerian president, his advanced age and not at all cheerful appearance even in the official photo, as well as the fact that Tebun is a "heavy smoker" (which further aggravates the concomitant fibrosis of lung tissue in "coronavirus"), then, most likely, probably, he is already completely incapacitated "living corpse" - "vegetable", while "artificially functioning" in the German intensive care unit ?! what
    Long-term mystery because "on the sidelines" of the Algerian government apparently there are endless "scrapes" because of the compromise candidacy of the "temporary replacement" ???

    Although, if by some miracle Abdelmajid Tebun survives (which I sincerely wish this Algerian!) After such a sweeping "mental burial", then this is a good, optimistic, folk omen - "will live a long time"! yes

    So what? Algeria is somewhere there. You never know who got infected there.
    Or is it somehow connected with the supply of SU and MIG?
    But the article doesn't talk about it
