The previously objecting Covid influencer died at the age of 33 after being infected with a deadly virus while traveling to Turkey.
Dmytro Stuzhuk was discharged from a hospital in Ukraine, but he was rushed back, and his condition quickly deteriorated.
The super-fitness trainer promoted sports and a healthy lifestyle to his millions of followers, but his death was eventually caused by coronavirus-related heart complications.
His ex-wife and mother of his three children, Sofia Stuzhuk, 25, told the news to her fans.
After he picked up the virus, which has now killed more than a million people worldwide, he shared a message with his fans to warn them.
Writing on social networks, Stuzhuk wrote: “I want to share how I got sick and strongly warn everyone.
“I was the one who thought Kovid didn’t exist.
He continued: “COVID-19 – NOT A DISEASE FOR A SHORT LIFE! And it is severe.”
Stuzhuk suspected that he had coronavirus when he woke up with a swollen neck and difficulty breathing. He then passed a test when he returned to Ukraine and passed a positive result before being admitted to hospital.
He continued: “The hospital is completely full of people, some of them are being treated in the corridors.”
The coach said that he needed an artificial respirator, but eight days later he could leave the ward where he was hospitalized in Kyiv.
He added: “At home, as they say, the walls heal – my condition is stable.”
However, a few hours later he was taken back to the hospital, where Sofia said he lost consciousness.
Sofia, who has five million subscribers, said she was fighting for her life: “Dima (Dmitry) had problems with the cardiovascular system.
“His heart is failing.”
Doctors said he suffered a clinical death, but they restarted his heart.
She wrote: “His state is extremely difficult. No one can do anything about it.
“I did everything I could to keep the father of my three children alive. But now nothing depends on me.”
Overwhelmed Sophia announced his death.
The couple had three children, David, Lola and Olivia. The youngest is only nine months old.
The couple divorced six months ago, but recently announced that they have returned to a good relationship.
She published: “There are only warm memories, three wonderful children and valuable experience.
“God, it’s so scary to realize he’s gone with us.”
