A man left unable to walk or talk since an accident in 2017 has surprised medics by using his legs and voice for the first time in five years, and says it's thanks to the "miracle" Covid jab. Dularchand Munda, 55, badly injured his spine in a car crash that left him bedridden and unable to speak. Just a day after being given the coronavirus vaccine, Munda says he could feel his legs and managed to walk around with a walking stick, The Mirror reports. Reports from NDTV say Munda has been able to talk for the first time since the accident in another "miracle". Dularchand, from Salgadih, 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 granddad getting to his feet and walking around with aid from a walking stick, allegedly for the first time since his car accident five years ago. Claims from the 55-year-old that his ability to walk returned thanks to having a Covid jab has been met with "surprise" by local medics who called a team in to look at it. Dr Jitendra Kumar said: "Amazed to see this. But it needs to be ascertained by scientists."

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 five years ago but he never regained the ability to walk until a day after his Covid jab.
