The covid-19 vaccination is in full swing in the nation with more than 37 crore doses administered against the deadly Corona Virus. But the threat of the pandemic and an upcoming third wave still looms at large because only 5% of the population is fully vaccinated.
It is not uncommon to get some side effects after the vaccine dose is administered. The symptoms usually range from headache, fever, back pain, joint pain to just normal weariness and tiredness. However, an unusual claim has popped up in Maharashtra’s Washim where a 70-year-old woman has some bizarre claims so as to the side effects of vaccination.
She claims that she has been able to regain her eyesight!
Notably, Mathurabai Bidve, a 70-year-old woman from Benderwadi in Washim district, has been living a dark life for the last nine years as she lost sight in both of her eyes 9 years ago after a cataract caused her iris to turn white.
Mathurabai is a native of Partur in Jalna district. She lives in Risod tehsil with her relatives and took her first dose of Covishield vaccine on June 26. The very next day after taking the vaccine, she claimed that she gained 30 to 40% eyesight from one eye.
It’s not yet confirmed by doctors whether the woman’s claim is true.
Many other incidents have popped up in recent times where people have claimed that they got strange and peculiar side effects after the vaccination.
Recently, Arvind Sonar, a resident of Maharashtra’s Nashik claimed that he developed magnetic powers after getting the second dose of the Covishield vaccine. The elderly man said that after getting inoculated with two doses of the vaccine, metal objects can easily stick to his body. He even made a video to prove this.
This was later debunked by doctors saying that he has extra sticky skin due to which metal items were sticking to his body and hence, it wasn’t a vaccine side effect.
