ALGIERS, Oct. 28 (Xinhua) -- Algerian President Abdelmadjid Tebboune on Wednesday evening was transferred to Germany for medical examination, the presidency announced in a statement.

It stated that Tebboune will undergo "in-depth physical examination" in Germany on the recommendation of his doctors.

The move comes one day after the announcement of Tebboune's admission to a specialized unit at a military hospital in the capital Algiers on Tuesday.

The presidency announced on Tuesday that the president's health condition "is stable and does not cause any concern," adding that he will continue daily activities at his treatment center.

Tebboune began self-imposed lockdown last Saturday after contacting senior officials who showed symptoms of COVID-19. Enditem
