A team of doctors from the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) reached GMCH today to check the health of former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi.
Mr. Gogoi was admitted to the intensive care unit of the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on Thursday due to post-COVID-19 complications.
“We had a videoconference with AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria in the morning to discuss Mr. Gogoi’s health condition. He expressed satisfaction with the line of treatment by the GMCH doctors and advised some tests,” Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma told journalists on Friday.
He added that a team of AIIMS specialists would be arriving “in a day or two” for treating the former Chief Minister, whose parliamentarian son Gaurav Gogoi participated in the videoconference too.
As per today’s check up by the team from AIIMS, Ex Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi is in a better position than that of Thursday, where his oxygen level had suddenly dropped and had to be admitted to the ICU.
He still is under oxygen support, with better food and small movements prescribed by the medical team.
