Metropolitan of Montenegro and the Littoral, Mr Amfilohije (83), passed away today due to coronavirus complications.
“On Friday, 30 October, at 8.20 in the Clinical Center of Montenegro, following the rite of receiving the Sacred Sacrament of Communion, the Most Reverend Archbishop of Cetinje, Metropolitan of Montenegro and the Littoral and Exarch of the Holy Throne of Peć Amfilohije, rested in the Lord”, Metropolitanate stated.
The public will be soon informed about the details of Mr Amfilohije’s funeral.
Head of the Pulmonary Clinic, Dr Jelena Borovinić-Bojović, said late last night that condition of Mr Amfilohije “has suddenly deteriorated” due to the development of pneumo-mediastinum as a consequence of the two-sided pneumonia provoked by coronavirus, for which Metropolitan has been negative for 10 days.
Mr Amfilohije has tested positive for the virus and then he got pneumonia. He was treated with Remdesivir and under 24-hour watch.
