Broadway star Nick Cordero has taken a turn for the worse amid his ongoing battle with the coronavirus, according to his wife Amanda Kloots. She has been updating fans on his health for over a month, and on Wednesday revealed he suffered a setback.

Kloots shared the news in an Instagram Story. "Nick has had a bad morning. Unfortunately things are going downhill at the moment, so I am asking again for all the prayers, mega-prayers, right now," she said through tears.

"Please cheer and please pray for Nick today, and I know that this virus is not going to get him down," Kloots added. "It's not how his story ends, so just keep us in your thoughts and prayers today, thank you."

Kloots did not specify what happened, but on Tuesday she had shared some good news about Cordero on Instagram.

"They pulled out less secretions today from Nick's lungs than the last time they cleaned him out. So that is great news just because any time they go in there and there's less than before is good," she said.

"So I'm gonna take that and I'm going to run with that for tonight and I'm going to celebrate that small win."

A week ago, Kloots announced the news that Cordero had woken up from his coma. He even got a special message from Sylvester Stallone.

"Guys, we might have to change our hashtag. Nick, dada, is awake!" Kloots said last week. "Finally confirmed after two days of, 'Is he doing this?' You get so excited, the nurses are like, 'We think this is happening.' The doctor confirmed today that, 'Yep, I think Nick is awake.' And I was like, 'Oh my God.'

"Everything is looking good, finally. It's so hard with this whole thing. You don't want to get yourself too excited because it's been such a road," she added. "What a miracle."

Kloots has also been using Cordero's story to urge people to take this virus seriously.

"What this man has gone through! Nick is 41 years old. He had no pre-existing health conditions," she wrote. "We do not know how he got COVID-19 but he did. He went to the ER on March 30th and intubated on a ventilator on April 1. Since then has he has suffered an infection that caused his heart to stop, he needed resuscitation, he had two mini strokes, went on ECMO, needed surgery to removal an ECMO cannula that was restricting blood flow to his leg, a faciatomy to relieve pressure on the leg, an amputation of his right leg, an MRI to further investigate brain damage, several bronchial sweeps to clear out his lungs, a septis infection causing septic shock, a fungus in his lungs, holes in his lungs, a tracheostomy, blood clots, low blood count and platelet levels, and a temporary pacemaker to assist his heart. He has spent 38 days now in the ICU."
