Broadway star, Nick Cordero has leg amputated due to Coronavirus complications

Broadway star, Nick Cordero is recovering after having his right leg amputated following complications with Coronavirus,

The Tony Award-nominated star, 41, was initially diagnosed with pneumonia, before testing positive for Coronavirus two weeks ago.

On Saturday, Nick's wife Amanda Kloots explained on her Instagram Story that she and her husband had received “difficult news”.

“Saturday was day 18 of him being sedated in the intensive care unit, Kloots told her social media followers. While hospitalized, he started having clotting issues on his right leg, and could not get blood down to his toes. The blood thinners he got to fix the clotting issues were affecting his blood pressure and causing internal bleeding in his intestines,” Kloots said.

“We took him off blood thinners but that again was going to cause some clotting in the right leg, so the right leg will be amputated today,” Kloots said.

She later confirmed at night that her husband underwent the amputation and “made it through”.

“He made it through the surgery, which is really big,” Kloots said. “They’re taking him back to the room to recover and rest for the rest of the night, so hopefully he’ll just kind of relax and rest.”

The Tony-nominated actor, who is best known for his work in Broadway productions of Waitress and Bullets Over Broadway, is currently hospitalized at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he lives with his family.

Trump warns China could face consequences if they deliberately misinformed the world on Coronavirus

President of the United States, Donald J.Trump, has warned the Chinese government it'll face grave consequences if it was "knowingly responsible" for the coronavirus pandemic. that has killed hundreds of thousands of people world wide.

Trump said he doesn't rule out that virus was spread -- accidentally -- from a laboratory researching bats in Wuhan but has admitted that China should suffer consequences over the pandemic if the US finds out that China purposely released the virus.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian has rejected reports that the virus which has left more than 157,000 people dead around the world was created by the Chinese military .

Trump also cast doubt on figures released by the Chinese government saying the country has suffered just 0.33 deaths per 100,000 people.

The United States, according to a chart displayed by Trump during a Saturday press briefing, has had 11.24 deaths per 100,000 people while France has had 27.92 and Spain 42.81.

But Trump says China's records are impossible to hit.

"The number's impossible," he said. "It's an impossible number to hit."

"It could have been stopped in China before it started and it wasn't," Trump told reporters at a White House briefing. "And now the whole world is suffering because of it."

"If they were knowingly responsible, certainly," he said when asked by reporters if China will be punished.

"If it was a mistake, a mistake is a mistake.

"But if they were knowingly responsible, yeah, then there should be consequences," Trump said.

"Was it a mistake that got out of control or was it done deliberately?" he asked. "That's a big difference between those two.

"In either event they should have let us go in," he said. "We asked to go in early. And they didn't want us in. I think they knew it was something bad and they were embarrassed."

"They said they're doing an investigation," the president continued. "So let's see what happens with their investigation. But we're doing investigations also."
