The wife of Broadway theater star Nick Cordeiro announced that his right leg was amputated as a result of complications from his illness due to the Corona virus.
The 41-year-old Cordero spent 18 days in the intensive care unit during his illness with Covid-19.
“Cordeiro’s condition required the use of blood thinners, which helped remove some of the clots in his leg, but they caused problems with his blood pressure and bleeding in his intestine,” said his wife, Amanda Clouts. “So the right leg will be amputated today.”
And developments emerged as doctors discovered a new infection in Cordeiro’s lung, forcing them to undergo emergency surgery.
