    AIIMS doctor likely to fly to GMCH to inspect Tarun Gogoi

    Himanta Biswa Sarma attended a video conferencing between a team of specialist doctors and AIIMS Director Randeep Guleri to discuss Tarun Gogoi's health

    GUWAHATI: Former chief minister Tarun Gogoi’s health remained stable as Assam government sought expert opinion from All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) on Friday.

    On Friday morning, state’s health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma himself attended a video conferencing between a team of specialist doctors and AIIMS Director Randeep Guleria.

    Informing the development, Sarma said, “At 9.15 AM today, I along with our team of specialist doctors from Assam held a VC with Director AIIMS Randeep Guleria to seek his advice on treatment protocol and future course for Tarun Gogoi, admitted at GMCH.”

    Sarma added that the ex-chief minister’s son and Congress MP Gaurav Gogoi was also present at the video conferencing.

    The minister added that Guleria expressed satisfaction on the treatment being administered at GMCH. A few additional tests were reportedly prescribed and a faculty from the AIIMS is likely to reach GMCH shortly to review the condition of Gogoi.

    Gogoi had tested positive for COVID-19 on August 25 and was admitted to the GMCH the next day. Though recovered from COVID 19 infection, the veteran Congressman’s health deteriorated on Thursday and was shifted to GMCH ICU.

    Earlier, the state health department had constituted a nine-member committee of doctors to monitor the health condition of the former chief minister.
