Chief Minister, Sarbananda Sonowal on Thursday visited the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) to take stock of the health of former Chief Minister, Tarun Gogoi.
Sonowal interacted with the former CM and wished him a speedy recovery.
Gogoi was admitted to the GMCH for the second time on November 1 after he complained of difficulty in breathing following a drop in his oxygen saturation level. Doctors put him on non-invasive ventilation.
Chief Minister Sonowal said, “Former CM Tarun Gogoi is a fatherly figure and I visited the hospital today as a son to take stock of his health. Senior doctors are closely monitoring him and his condition is gradually improving. He is our senior and we together have a lot to do for the public.”
Gogoi has expressed his satisfaction with the medical services being provided at GMCH, said Sonowal.
The 85-year-old former CM had been admitted to the GMCH in August after he tested positive for Covid-19. Even after testing negative, he remained in the hospital to fully recover. However, during this phase, he had to be admitted to the intensive care unit after a sharp drop in his oxygen saturation level on September 26.
He was finally discharged on October 25 after spending 60 days in the hospital.
