Amanda Kloots, the wife of Canadian actor Nick Cordero, took to Instagram to provide fans with an update on his COVID-19 condition, revealing that doctors cannot take the actor off of the ventilator after he developed a fever. 


Nick Cordero is still on a ventilator after developing a fever as he continues to battle COVID-19. The actor's wife provided the latest update concerning his health in a post on her Instagram Story

According to Amanda, Cordero developed a fever on Monday, meaning that doctors could no longer take him off of the ventilator as earlier planned. The fever led to the actor's blood pressure dropping slightly.

This also meant that Cordero is now back on a blood pressure medication he stopped taking, with the doctors doing all they can to ensure that the fever does not get out of control. 

Amanda also revealed that the doctors are running some tests on her husband to discover what the source of the fever could be. She said

"They have got it under control. They are working on him and taking good care of him, but they aren't going to set aside the ventilator until they get this under control." 


Amanda also urged fans to continue to pray for her ailing husband and her family. She and Cordero share a 10-month-old son, Elvis Eduardo. 

The update comes a week after Amanda told her fans that her husband's doctors were thinking about taking him off the ventilator and putting in a breathing tube to aid his comfort. 

There were more battles to come for Cordero even after he was put in a ventilator and an ECMO machine to support his heart and lungs.

The actor has been through a lot and had to have his right leg amputated due to complications from the novel coronavirus. While updating fans last Friday, Amanda revealed that her husband tested negative twice for the virus after the amputation procedure.

Doctors also put in a temporary pacemaker to help in stabilizing the actor's irregular heart rate. The "Waitress" actor has been in intensive care since March and was admitted to the hospital after he began having breathing difficulties. 


Cordero was diagnosed with pneumonia. He also tested negative to COVID-19 twice but tested positive to the virus after a third test. The actor got worse and was placed in a medically-induced coma. 

There were more battles to come for Cordero even after he was put in a ventilator and an ECMO machine to support his heart and lungs, with doctors discovering a new infection in his lungs for which he underwent surgery. 


The actor also started experiencing clotting issues in his right leg, which inhibited blood from circulating to his toes and culminated in his leg needing to be amputated, a difficult but necessary decision. 

The surgery was successful; the actor continues to recuperate and receive treatment at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Friends of the Cordero family also started a GoFundMe page to help raise funds for his medical bills.
