Bedridden Jharkhand man claims he walked again after receiving COVID vaccine

A resident of Jharkhand's Bolaro district, who was bedridden for four years, has claimed he began walking again after he was administered the first dose of COVID - 19 vaccine.

Dularchand, a 44-year-old woman, had reportedly met with an accident four years ago. He was allegedly unable to speak and was confined to bed after the accident.

He received the first dose of Covishield vaccine on January 4. Dularchand's body began reacting a day after he was administered the COVID vaccine, according to Dr Albel Kerketta, medical in-charge of Petarwar community health centre in Bokaro's Petarwar village.

He claimed that he could stand on his feet and get back his lost voice after getting jabbed.

Glad to have taken this vaccine. Since taking the vaccine on January 4, there has been movement in my legs, according to Dularchand, who told ANI.

Bokaro's civil surgeon Dr Jitendra Kumar stated that although the incident was surprising, it was no short of a miracle. He also directed the creation of a medical team to examine the medical history of Dularchand.
