A 33-year-old Ukrainian fitness influencer, who once thought that the coronavirus does not exist, has succumbed to the disease. Dmitriy Stuzhuk had caught the virus during a recent trip to Turkey.
His ex-wife Sofia Stuzhuk confirmed the news of Stuzhuk’s death on her Instagram account. Stuzhuk was rushed to an overcrowded hospital. Sofia revealed, that he was in a “grave condition” and unconscious.
Stuzhuk had shared his experience with his 1.1 million followers on his Instagram handle on October 15. He wrote: “I also thought that there was no Covid… Until I got sick”.
“COVID-19 DISEASE IS NOT EPHEME (short-lived)! And heavy,” he wrote.
His ex-wife told her followers that he had “problems with his cardiovascular system… his heart is not coping. His state is extremely grave. No one can do anything with this,” Sky News reported.
“I did everything I could so the father of my three children lives. But nothing depends on me now,” she added.
She later announced his death, saying: “Dima is no longer with us. His heart could not stand”.
