Dularchand Munda, 55, from India, has regained the ability to walk and talk for the first time since a car crash in 2017 after having a jab, leaving local medics baffled.
A man left unable to use his legs or voice since an accident in 2017 has shocked medics by walking and talking – and says it is thanks to the ‘miracle’ Covid jab.
Dularchand Munda, 55, seriously hurt his spine in a car crash which left him bedridden and unable to speak.
But hours after being given the Covishield vaccine he says he could feel his legs moving again and even managed to walk around, with the help of a walking stick.
In another apparent ‘miracle’, he has been able to talk for the first time since the accident, NDTV reported.
Dularchand, from Salgadih village, India, said: “Glad to have taken this vaccine. I can move my legs after taking the vaccine on January 4.
“My voice came back and my feet also moved.”
Footage showed the grandfather walking around his home with his family
Footage from the village showed the granddad getting to his feet and walking around.
His claims that his new found ability to walk was thanks to having a Covid jab has been met with ‘surprise’ by local medics who have called for a team to look into it.
Dr Jitendra Kumar said, “Amazed to see this. But it needs to be ascertained by scientists. “Had he recovered from a medical condition not more than some days old, it could be understood but recovering suddenly from a four-year-old medical condition after taking the vaccine is unbelievable.”
Dularchand Munda was left bedridden after the car crash four years ago
Albel Kerketta, in charge of Petarwar health centre, added: “Accurate information and answers will be available in the coming days when the medical world will conduct research on Dularchand Munda’s illness and his recovery.”
Dularchand’s family says he was treated after the car crash four years ago but he never regained the ability to walk – until now.
