Assam Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal on Friday took stock of the health condition of Veteran Congress leader Tarun Gogoi.

CM  Sonowal on Friday spoke to Gaurav Gogoi, MP from Koliabor and son of former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi for an update on the former Chief Minister’s health who is under treatment at the ICU in Guwahati Medical College and Hospital.

The 85-year-old leader’s condition has slightly improved since Thursday, Assam Health Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said.

The former chief minister tested positive for coronavirus on August 25 and was admitted to the ICU of GMCH following post-COVID-19 complications. He tested negative recently but remained in the hospital.
