Nick Cordero, the 41-year-old former star of Broadway's Waitress musical, is fighting for his life in the intensive care unit.
His wife, Amanda Kloots, wrote on Tuesday that her husband has been "sick for awhile" with what they were informed last week is pneumonia.
"Unfortunately we think he was misdiagnosed and we are waiting to hear if this is in fact COVID. He is scared, in the ICU and now unconscious so his body can get enough oxygen," she said, noting that it's unclear if he is suffering form the effects of the novel coronavirus. "We are all trying to stay positive and strong knowing that he is in the best care. I miss him terribly. I’m not allowed there to visit of course and can do nothing to help him."
