Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi Extremely Critical, Doctors Say
Former Assam Prime Minister Tarun Gogoi’s health condition deteriorated Monday morning and he is “very, very critical,” doctors said.
The leader of the Octogenerian Congress, who is undergoing treatment at Gauhati Medical College Hospital for post-Covid complications, is being monitored by a team of nine doctors, GMCH Superintendent Abhijit Sarma said.
“The current state of Sir (Gogoi) is very critical and the doctors are doing their best,” he told reporters.
Assam’s health minister, Himanta Biswa Sarma, is at GMCH along with Gogoi’s son, Gaurav.
Gogoi, who is on ventilation and has suffered multi-organ failure, was on dialysis Sunday, which he was able to sustain for six hours.
His blood pressure fluctuates and he is breathing fully with the help of machines.
The 84-year-old three-time prime minister was admitted to GMCH on November 2. He was placed under invasive ventilation on Saturday night when his condition worsened.
On October 25, Gogoi, who was in treatment for Covid-19 and other post-recovery complications, was discharged from GMCH after two months.
He had tested positive for Covid-19 on August 25 and admitted to the GMCH the next day.
