Tony Award-nominated Broadway star Nick Cordero has tested negative for the coronavirus twice, while battling an unknown illness in a Los Angeles hospital intensive care unit.
The Canadian actor, who starred in "Bullets Over Broadway" in 2014 and last year's hit musical "Waitress", was admitted to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center after contracting what was initially believed to be pneumonia, with wife Amanda Kloots taking to Instagram on Wednesday, April 1, 2020 to tell fans he was unconscious and awaiting the results of his Covid-19 test.
But in an update on Thursday on her Instagram Stories, Amanda revealed that her 41-year-old spouse doesn't have the disease - although doctors are so convinced he does that they've administered a third test.
"Update on Nick! Two negative COVID tests. Doctors are convinced though that it is COVID so they did a third test," she wrote. "He is doing BETTER! His body is responding well to the medication for COVID and he needs less oxygen from the ventilator. His latest chest x-ray is also better!"
Despite her positive update, Amanda added that doctors had warned her to "prepare myself for the long haul because we are at the beginning of this."
Cordero most recently appeared onstage in a Hollywood production of musical "Rock of Ages", which was shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic.
