Former Assam Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi’s health has deteriorated, with multi-organ failure and difficulty in breathing, state health minister Himanta Biswa Sarma said on Saturday.

The 86-year old veteran Congress politician, who was on Non Invasive Ventilation (NIV) since he was admitted at Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH) on November 2 due to post-COVID complications, was put under invasive ventilation, the minister said.

“Around afternoon today, his condition deteriorated with difficulties in breathing. So, doctors started an intubation ventilator, which is machine ventilation,” said Sarma, who rushed to the GMCH to inquire after Gogoi’s health.
