His condition is still serious, he’s still in intensive care,” Nurmagomedov (via RT Sport). “The coronavirus itself is behind him, but the virus has had consequences for his kidneys and his heart.

As for the virus, there’s no need to worry, only about the other consequences.”

In April, his father underwent a heart surgery that arose after complications from getting infected by Coronavirus. Abdulmanap had heart surgery last year and was suffering from pneumonia-like symptoms.

Following this, he was advised by doctors to get tested for Coronavirus, he refused and went about his daily activities. As his conditions worsened he had to be flown into Moscow on a special plane where he tested positive for COVID-19.

Khabib claims more than 20 people in his family have contracted Covid-19

A few months ago, Khabib Nurmagomedov took to Instagram and stated that as many as 20 people in his family were infected with COVID-19.

In my personal case, I’ve had more than 20 people sick from my family,” Nurmagomedov said in his Instagram video. “More than 20 people were lying in the ICUs. And many of them are no longer among us. Many acquaintances have died, many parents of my relatives. Everybody is having a hard time dealing with it.


There is a lot written on the internet about my father. My father, right now, is located in a hospital. He is in critical condition as a result of this virus. It impacted his heart because last year he had a surgery there, and right now, they did another surgery. He is in a very difficult situation, very difficult. We are asking Allah that he returns him to us.” (Translated by ESPN)
