Thirty-three-year-old Ukrainian fitness influencer Dmitriy Stuzhuk passed away on Saturday after acquiring heart difficulties due to the pandemic COVID-19. He got the COVID-19 after his recent trip to Turkey. Earlier, he had alleged that it was a hoax and downplayed the threat posed by the coronavirus.

Dmitriy Stuzhuk had advised his followers, that number at over a million, on Instagram that he did not think the virus could be deadly to young people or was dangerous or even if it existed until he lately incurred the virus. He said that he thought that the severity of the virus was a hoax.

Consequently, he underwent a COVID-19 organ-system failure after the disease and passed away. The fitness influencer told his Instagram followers, “I need to share how I got infected and to alert everyone actively. I was one who believed that Covid does not survive until I got ill. COVID-19 IS NOT A SHORT-LIVED DISEASE! And it is heavy.” Dmitriy Stuzhuk has three children with his ex-wife, with whom he divorced six months before, and their child is only nine months old.

Стих собственного сочинения, для @stuzhuk_dmitriy 🕯 Ты был прекрасным, мудрым, сильным. Героем книги про любовь. Финал истории правдивой, потряс финалом всех своих… Ты словно ангел появился, в сердцах чужих, оставив след. Бывал ты искренним, правдивым. Таким и будешь для своих. Судьба по своему решила, Забрав тебя, на небеса. Всегда ты будешь мудрым , сильным, прекрасным мужем и отцом…. #дмитрийстужук #покойсясмиром #светлаяпамять #стихсобственногосочинения
