Guwahati (Assam) [India], Sep 1 (ANI): A sudden fall in oxygen saturation of former chief minister Tarun Gogoi, who is undergoing treatment after testing positive for coronavirus, occurred at 11:30 pm on Monday, according to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma.
The former CM is admitted to the Gauhati Medical College and Hospital (GMCH).
