Hamilton-born Broadway star Nick Cordero could be turning a corner in his battle against coronavirus.
His wife, Amanda Kloots, announced on her Instagram Story Friday that her 41-year-old husband has tested negative twice for COVID-19, which could mean the novel virus has left his system.
“Good news, dada had two negative COVID tests. Yay!” the former Radio City Rockette told her followers as she held their son, Elvis. “Which means we think the virus is out of his system and now we’re just dealing with recovery and getting his body back from all the repercussions of the virus.”
She added, “But COVID is two negative tests, which means hopefully the virus is out of Nick. Thank god.”
The Broadway actor has been unconscious on a ventilator at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for more than three weeks, though Kloots said this week that he’s “making progress” in his recovery after he had his leg amputated last weekend.
On Thursday, however, Kloots said Cordero should’ve “woken up by now.”
“The doctors said that there was nothing on the MRI that would show that he won’t wake up, which is amazing. We are so happy about that because that was a big worry for all of us,” Kloots said. “However, he hasn’t woken up and it’s been 12 days out of sedation.” Nick’s story was featured on ABC;s Good Morning America yesterday. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uNLnb3ScH1A
