A man in Jharkhand has claimed that he started walking again after he received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
A man in Jharkhand’s Bokaro district, who was reportedly bed-ridden for four years, claimed that he started walking again after he received the first dose of Covid-19 vaccine.
Dularchand, 44, a resident of Bokaro’s Petarwar village, reportedly met with an accident four years ago. He allegedly lost his voice and was bedridden following the accident.
On January 4, Dularchand received the first dose of Covishield vaccine on January 4. According to Dr Albel Kerketta, medical in-charge of Petarwar community health centre, Dularchand’s body started reacting a day after he received the Covid-19 vaccine.
Days after receiving the vaccine, Dularchand claimed that he could stand on his feet and regained his lost voice. “Glad to have taken this vaccine. There is movement in my legs since taking the vaccine on January 4,” Dularchand told ANI.
Bokaro’s civil surgeon Dr Jitendra Kumar said while the incident was surprising, it was no miracle. He also ordered the formation of a medical team to analyse the medical history of Dularchand.
