A specialist doctor from All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi, will be arriving in Guwahati for the treatment of former Assam chief minister Tarun Gogoi.

The senior leader was admitted at ICU of Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) in Guwahati on September 24 in a critical condition within a few days after recovering from COVID-19.

A team of specialist doctors of GMCH who are supervising Gogoi had a video conference with the director of AIIMS Randeep Guleria on September 25, which was also attended by Assam Health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma and Gogoi’s son Gaurav Gogoi, who is a Lok Sabha member.

Sarma later told reporters that a specialist from AIIMS will be sent to the GMCH within 2-3 days to oversee the treatment of the former chief minister, who is currently on oxygen support in the ICU.

He said the GMCH doctors made a presentation to the AIIMS director on the present condition of Gogoi, and the director, expressing satisfaction at the line of treatment, also advised additional tests.

The minister said Gogoi’s condition has improved since his admission on September 24 and his body’s oxygen saturation has improved considerably with oxygen support.
