His wife published emotional photos of the couple with their little ones.
Dmitriy Stuzhuk belonged to a large group of people who think that SARS-CoV-2 is nothing more than a global hoax, but in his last post on Instagram before he lost his life he warned: “The COVID-19 disease does not! it is ephemeral! And it is serious ”.
“I also thought that COVID did not exist (…) until I got sick,” wrote the influencer, father of three, who died of coronavirus in his last post . Stuzhuk had more than a million followers on Instagram and was recognized for his work in the world of fitness and bodybuilding. He was only 33 years old.
“ I want to share how I got sick and warn everyone: I also thought that COVID did not exist, and all this is relative. Until I got sick . COVID-19 DISEASE IS NOT EPHEMERAL! And it is serious, “he wrote in his last post entitled” Coronavirus COVID day 8 “.
It all started during a trip he made to Turkey where he contracted the virus. Stuzhuk said he was awakened one night by a swollen neck and labored breathing, as well as a mild stomach ache . Back in Kiev, Ukraine, where he lived, and after suffering a cough without temperature, he decided to take a coronavirus test that came back positive.
He went to his hospital, but as it was undergoing renovation, the patients lived in conditions of shortage of food and hygiene products, so he decided to continue his treatment at home . Doctors allowed it because his oxygenation level was between 94 and 96 percent, but his health rapidly deteriorated.
“Dima is no longer with us. His heart could not bear it, “wrote the model Sofía Stuzhuk , the influencer’s wife, on her own Instagram account when confirming the death of the father of her children. The also influencer with more than five million followers explained that, although they were in the process of divorce, Stuzhuk’s death was no less painful for her.
“For the rest of my life I will be grateful to you for our three beautiful children. For all the invaluable experience and what I became by being with you, ”the woman wrote. “I learned to make important decisions with you. I learned with you to be an adult and independent. I became self-sufficient with you. I found my wounds and pains with you, ”said the model whose youngest son is just nine months old .
In her post, Sofía regretted that Dmitriy had not listened to her advice about her health and although she admitted that their relationship was problematic, she calls him “my important person, my main teacher, my guide, the father of my children. You are our guardian angel and your love will always protect our angels ”.
