Former Assam CM Tarun Gogoi had tested positive for COVID-19 on August 25 and was admitted to the GMCH the next day.
There has been an overnight improvement in the health condition of the 85-year-old former chief minister with his oxygen level rising to 94 this morning though he is still on artificial supply.
The 85-year-old leader tested positive for COVId-19 on August 25 and was admitted to the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital the next day.
In the last week of August, Gogoi had himself informed that he had tested positive for the disease and urged others who had come in contact with him to get themselves tested.
The state’s Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said Gogoi, who is admitted in the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital, had a sudden fall in oxygen saturation to 88% at 11.30 pm on Monday.
The veteran Congress leader urged all those who came in contact with him recently to get tested.
Gogoi headed a bench which delivered the verdict in the Ram Janmabhoomi-Babri Masjid case that gave Hindus the 2.77 acre disputed land.
He said the Ayodhya ritual would be remembered as a day of great national importance as it brought an end to a bitter conflict between two parties belonging to two different religions.
The former Assam CM wrote to Home Minister Amit Shah demanding that the two women be released immediately.
Natasha Narwal and Devangana Kalita were members of Pinjra Tod, a collective of women students and alumni of colleges across Delhi.
Following the MHA decision, all NSG commandos, attached to Gogoi, have been withdrawn from his security.
