Very sad to hear he lost his fight with coronavirus. He was an extremely well known stage actor in NYC, that's why people care.

did All those health setbacks come about as a result of corona virus ? They seem quite severe to be symptoms of the disease

According to the reports, Nick Cordero had no underlying health conditions. If that's true, then his case underlines the fact that Covid-19 can take anybody down - even though as a 41 year-old stage actor he was pretty young, and, you'd think, pretty fit. Leaves behind a wife and one year-old baby, a tragedy.

Cordero entered the emergency room on March 30 and had a succession of health setbacks, including mini-strokes, blood clots, septis infections, a tracheostomy and a temporary pacemaker implanted. He had been on a ventilator and unconscious and had his right leg amputated. A double lung transplant was being explored.

Still think it's no biggie if you get this? Close down Tokyo's entertainment districts.

He had no underlying illness? This is a game changer. Now I am a lot more confused. Does anyone think we are not being told the truth now?

It's a series of one thing led to another.

Cordero's reaction to Covid-19 was so severe he had to be put on medically-induced coma while on ventilator, dialysis, and a specialized heart-lung bypass machine.

Then a blood clot (another thing Covid-19 increases the chances of developing) in his right leg that ultimately led to the leg being amputated.

He also endured brief heart stoppage, minor heart attacks, sepsis, and a tracheotomy.

His body was just so much weakened. RIP
