Austrian Health Minister Rudolf Anschober has said he is stepping down after feeling exhausted from fighting the coronavirus pandemic.
"In the worst health crisis in decades, the republic needs a Minister of Health who is 100% capable. This, at present, is not me ", said Anschober, mentioning the problems with blood pressure.
"I got a very nice and challenging job 15 months ago. "It seems to me that 15 months have not passed, but 15 years," he said in a statement to the media.
Anschober took office in January 2020, before the pandemic hit Austria.
Anschober, a 60-year-old former journalist, is one of Austria's most popular politicians, known for his lengthy explanations of the pandemic challenges.
He has often been the only voice in government when he called for stricter blocking measures, in the face of the high number of coronavirus infections.
Anschober said Tuesday that he has not had a full day off for more than a year - which has damaged his health.
Austria, a country of 8.8 million people, has registered over 578,000 cases of coronavirus and over 9,700 victims./REL
