YORKSHIRE Ripper Peter Sutcliffe is terrified Covid could kill him – but believes he will go to heaven when he dies as he is a Jehovah's Witness.
Sutcliffe, 74 – who has tested positive for the virus – has previously signed 'Do not Resuscitate' forms if he falls seriously ill.
And he has told pals that he fears the illness – which has seen him isolated at Frankland Prison, County Durham – is deadly and could "finish me off".
But astonishingly Sutcliffe – who killed 13 women and tried to kill seven more – believes he will go to paradise as his conversion years ago means he has “accepted God”.
A source said: “Peter has been really worried about Coronavirus since the beginning of the year and has been very cautious. He has said it is deadly and terrifying.
“He knows he is at massive risk because of his age and health and has not been mixing with other cons in Frankland, apart from those that help him eat and get around.
“He has even been advising his friends on the outside not to go out and to try to make sure they’re safe.
“But he has also been talking about how he believes he will go to heaven when he dies, so he’s not concerned about that.
“He genuinely that that he has found the true religion and all Jehovah’s Witnesses are guaranteed a place in heaven regardless of their pasts.
“Not many people agree with him, but he thinks his awful crimes will be forgiven because he has accepted God.”
Sutcliffe signed DNR forms in April, meaning he would not be given forceful CPR if he fell seriously ill.
The serial killer – – transferred back to prison in 2016 – as baptised as a Jehovah’s Witness at in a specially arranged ceremony while still held at Broadmoor High Security Hospital.
He has told pals it is the “one true religion” and believes in Armageddon and paradise.
In a previous rant to a pal Sutcliffe said: “Jehovah’s Witnesses don’t believe in war and if everyone felt the same there would be no wars. The reason there is so much grief in the world is because Satan rules the earth and his followers know they have only so much time before Armageddon.
“After Armageddon there will be no war, death or disease and everyone will live together on a paradise earth.”
Sutcliffe – who targeted lone women who he stabbed and bludgeoned in cowardly attacks from 1975 to 1980 – was rushed to University Hospital, County Durham last week with a suspected heart attack.
After five days, he was stabilised and returned to Frankland Prison, where he tested positive for Covid and was placed in isolation.
He has had a previous heart attack, is diabetic, overweight and has angina – placing him at his risk of the disease. The killer had complained about his treatment in prison before his hospital dash.
A separate source said: “It is ironic he was moaning about his treatment, then got taken to hospital and he seems to have caught Covid there.”
