Broadway Star Nick Cordero Forced To Have Leg Amputated After Coronavirus Infection

Broadway star Nick Cordero has now lost his leg due to complications arising from his Coronavirus infection. As The New York Post reports:

Tony Award-nominated actor Nick Cordero has had his his right leg amputated after suffering complications from the coronavirus, his wife says.

Amanda Kloots on Instagram wrote late Saturday that Cordero “made it out of surgery alive and is headed to his room to rest and recover.”

Cordero had been treated with blood thinners to help with clotting in his leg, but his doctors had to stop the treatment because it was causing internal bleeding.

“We took him off blood thinners but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today,” she said earlier Saturday.

Codero has been on a ventilator since he entered the hospital on March 31st.
