Ukrainian fitness Instagram influencer, 33, ‘who thought Covid didn’t exist’ dies of coronavirus


A fitness influencer who thought Covid didn’t exist has died aged just 33 after contracting the virus on a trip to Turkey.

Dmitriy Stuzhuk had been discharged from hospital in his native Ukraine – but was rushed back and rapidly deteriorated.

To his one million subscribers, he appeared super-fit as he promoted sports and healthy living.

But his ex-wife and mother of his three children, Sofia Stuzhuk, 25, who announced his death said coronavirus had triggered heart complications.
