Former CM Tarun Gogoi was admitted to the GMCH on August 26 after he tested positive for COVID-19.

Former Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi, who was discharged from the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on Sunday, thanked the doctors and hospital staff for taking good care of him.

The 85-year-old veteran Congress leader further said that he is looking forward to continuing his recovery at home under medical supervision.

“I thank the entire medical team at Guwahati Medical College and Hospital including the specialists, doctors, nurses, staff, for their excellent care for the past two months. I look forward to continuing my recovery at home under medical supervision,” Gogoi said in a tweet on Monday afternoon.

Gogoi, who was undergoing treatment for COVID-19 and other post-recovery complications, was discharged from the GMCH on Sunday after exactly two months.

The three-time chief minister was admitted to the GMCH on August 26 after he had tested positive for COVID-19.

He was shifted to the intensive care unit (ICU) at the GMCH on September 24, following a drop in his oxygen saturation level. He was administered plasma therapy and was stable later.
