Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune has left a German hospital where he was flown for treatment more than a month ago, and he will return home “in the coming days,” the presidency said on Monday.


Tebboune, 75, who has tested positive for COVID-19, will continue “the rest of the recovery period” in Germany, it said in a statement.


Tebboune, a heavy smoker, was admitted to hospital in Germany on October 28 to undergo "in-depth medical examinations", according to the presidency.


Algeria has officially recorded more than 80,000 novel coronavirus cases and more than 2,000 deaths.
