fitness influencer who laughed off Covid-19 saying it does not exist has been killed by the virus.
He was 33. Dmitriy Stuzhuk caught Covid while on holiday in Turkey. He battled the virus in hospital for days before succumbing to it.
Dmitriy said he woke up in Turkey with a swollen neck and breathing difficulties. He posted a video before he passed away: “I want to share how I got sick and to strongly warn everyone. I was one who thought that Covid does not exist… “Until I got sick. Covid-19 is not a short lived disease. And it is heavy.”
His heartbroken ex-wife Sofia Stuzhuk, 25, later announced he had died after the virus triggered heart complications.
