New Delhi: In what might be termed as a ‘miraculous recovery’, a 55-year-old bedridden man started to walk and speak after being administered the first shot of Covishield vaccine in Jharkhand on Thursday, said doctors.
According to the doctors as quoted by news agency PTI, Dularchand Munda, a resident of Salgadih village in Uttasara panchayat area of Peterwar block in Bokaro district, Jharkhand, was bedridden with spine problems after he met with an accident five years back, following which he lost the ability to walk and speak.
Dr Albela Kerketta, the in-charge of Peterwar Community Health Centre, said that Dularchand Munda, the sole bread earner of the family, was given the first dose of Covishield vaccine by an Anganwadi worker at his house on January 4. The following morning, his family was shocked to see that Munda had not only started to walk but started speaking too.
“We saw his reports. This is a matter of investigation,” Dr Kerketta said.
Stunned over this ‘miraculous recovery’, a three-member medical team has been constituted by the government to probe the matter, said Bokaro’s Civil Surgeon Dr Jitendra Kumar.
This is a surprising incident. We will analyse Munda’s medical history, news agency PTI quoted Dr Kumar.
After receiving his first dose of Covishield, Munda, who was critically injured in the road accident five years back, started walking and speaking, said the doctors.
Astonished over the incident, the villagers of Salgadih, about 50km from the district headquarters in Bokaro, termed it a divine intervention.
