The Yorkshire Ripper is "seriously ill" after refusing medical treatment due to heart problems and coronavirus complications.
74-year-old Peter Sutcliffe, who murdered at least 13 women in the 1970s and 1980s, returned to HMP Frankland, Co Durham, Tuesday after a five-day hospital stay with heart problems.
However, upon returning to the prison's medical isolation unit, Sutcliffe complained of shortness of breath and chest pain and tested positive for Covid-19 later on Friday.
The The infamous serial killer was hospitalized again on Sunday.
It was his second visit to North Durham University Hospital in less than a week.
On his first visit, he spent five nights there as of November 3 and was discharged after testing negative for Covid – complaining of symptoms similar to Covid-19 when he was admitted to the hospital.
A source told the Mail: “He is seriously ill.
& # 39; Sutcliffe is overweight, in her 70s and has pre-existing health problems. Covid could easily finish him off. «

He has previously complained about health issues such as shortness of breath, claiming he suffered from long-term coronavirus symptoms.

"I hope I can breathe and get some sleep if I hit the sack tonight, or I'll have to call in sick tomorrow."

The mass murderer, allegedly afraid of Covid-19, has turned away visitors throughout the pandemic.
In recent years he has suffered from angina, diabetes and near blindness after being attacked by a fellow inmate.
He said, “My eyesight is getting worse – I run into people. I've been completely blind in one eye for 20 years and the other is deteriorating pretty quickly.
He previously spoke of his anger over being handcuffed while visiting the hospital.
"It's absolutely stupid," he said.
“Where should I go in a hospital gown? And how could I get out of the hospital? It was like a labyrinth, a huge place. I wouldn't even try.
"I have no intention of making a runner … just these stupid Category A rules they have."
Three years after his incarceration, Sutcliffe was transferred to Broadmoor Hospital after being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia.
He was transferred to HMP Frankland in 2016 after psychiatrists said he was stable enough to go to prison.
