Nick Cordero, a Canadian Broadway and TV actor, has died at the age of 41 after battling the novel coronavirus for about three months.
Cordero passed away in the US city of Los Angeles on Monday from severe medical complications after contracting coronavirus.
While hospitalized, he suffered sepsis infections and mini-strokes and had his right leg amputated.
"My heart is broken as I cannot imagine our lives without him," his wife Amanda Kloots wrote on Instagram.
Cordero also appeared in the 2017 film ‘Going in Style’, which starred Morgan Freeman.
All Broadway theaters have been closed since March 12 as part of measures aimed to curb the spread of the COVID-19 respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus, and will remain closed until 2021 due to the pandemic.
The flu-like deadly virus first emerged in China in late 2019 and has now infected millions of people and killed hundreds of thousands across the world.
