Nick Cordero doing ‘slightly better’ amid coronavirus battle

Broadway star Nick Cordero is continuing to make improvements as he recovers from the Covid-19 virus.

The Rock of Ages actor’s wife, Amanda Kloots, has been positive about the 41-year-old’s recovery after he woke from a six-week-long, medically-induced coma earlier this month. During this time, doctors had to amputate one of Nick’s legs to prevent blood clotting and fit him with a temporary pacemaker for his heart.

He has also suffered two mini-strokes, a septic infection, and fungus in his lungs – but despite the odds, Amanda told fans on Instagram on Monday that he’s “doing slightly better than yesterday”.


“They turned him to a proning position today to open his airways,” she explained. “He has had this before and it helped a lot. They also cleaned his lungs out again to help fight the infection.”

Amanda went on to tell fans that, while her husband has since tested negative for Covid-19 after his initial hospitalisation, he continues to deal with the infections and complications that resulted from the illness.

“He is and has been Covid negative now for weeks. What he is and has been dealing with is the fallout from the virus and from infections that arise from being in the ICU as long as he has,” she continued. “Please keep your prayers coming!”
