Cordero was admitted to the hospital in late March. The Broadway star was initially diagnosed with pneumonia and tested negative for coronavirus twice. After being given a third test, he tested positive for COVID-19. He has since tested negative for coronavirus again. Cordero has experienced several complications over the course of his hospitalization, including having his leg amputated and experiencing lung damage. He was placed in a medically induced coma for several weeks and is now awake. However, Kloots said he is “profoundly weak,” noting that he “interacts with his eyes” and answers questions “by looking up for yes and down for no.”
“Imagine how you feel getting the flu and how it can take your body a full week to recover,” Kloots wrote in part of a post last week. “Now imagine how Nick’s body feels, all that he has gone through and how long it will take him to recover.”
She also gave fans an update on his health over the weekend.
“Nick is doing OK. It’s just that he’s in this vicious ICU dance circle where one thing goes right, and then another thing goes wrong, and that thing that was wrong goes right, but then the thing that was right goes wrong,” Kloots said via Instagram Stories at the time, per CBS News. “To me, right now it’s just like, how do we get out of this vicious circle, this circle of the ICU?”
She reportedly later added, “There’s still carbon dioxide level problems. He’s still acidotic, and there’s still blood pressure issues. So, we kind of really need those things to get sorted in order to move forward.”
