The Mysterious "Coronavirus" Death Of Nick Cordero

July 7th, 2020 | RR

The media is reporting the death of Broadway actor, Nick Cordero, as related to Coronavirus, or as a "COVID-19 related" death. However, the same reports from mainstream media seem to create some unanswered questions and contradictions. We're going to focus on how People Magazine reported his death, as it closely resembles how the actor's death was largely reported by other outlets. Similar to other media reports, People's reporting raises serious questions regarding the official account of Nick Cordero's death. 

Health officials, doctors, and nurses have been working around the clock during this pandemic, so this is not intended to be a dig at them or some typical crackpot conspiracy theory designed to undermine the hard work everyone has been doing. There is much we don't know about this mysterious virus, but much we do. We know the death rate is declining in the United States and we know the average age of mortality for COVID-19 is around 80. We know the virus is proving to be far less fatal than originally thought, with some studies suggesting that the virus has been more widespread than what testing has been able to confirm. If true, the mortality rate for Coronavirus will end up being far lower than originally estimated. 

With that said, there are some serious contradictions in how Nick Cordero's death is being reported. If health officials are truly counting his death as a "COVID-19 related" death, we should be asking more questions. As of now, mainstream media hasn't touched on the major contradictions that have appeared in their very own reporting.

So far, no one appears to be asking any questions.

These are a few questions and contradictions that have arisen since Cordero's death has made headlines. If his death is similar in nature to how many Coronavirus deaths are being reported, we may have a serious problem. 

As you'll see, the math just doesn't add up. 

He Tested Negative Twice

According to the People article we will be using as a reference, Nick Cordero fell ill in early March, but tested negative for the Coronavirus twice before testing positive after the third try:

Kloots revealed on March 31 that her husband was in intensive care and “having a hard time breathing” after being diagnosed with pneumonia. Days later, the fitness trainer revealed that her husband was in “stable” condition, but that doctors were still confirming the cause of his health crisis. “Two negative COVID tests. Doctors are convinced though that it is COVID so they did a third test,” she wrote, adding that her husband was responding “well to the medication for COVID.”

His third test came back positive for coronavirus.

Faulty Coronavirus tests have been known to inaccurately produce both negative and positive results, but to test negative twice during the height of one's symptoms has proven rare throughout this pandemic when testing kits are not faulty. This raises the question of how accurate testing has been. Secondly, it raises the question of when Cordero actually contracted the Coronavirus. 

If the testing kits being used were not faulty, is it possible that Cordero never had the virus, but was later exposed to it inside the hospital? Or, is it possible he fell ill due to other reasons, only to have contracted the virus later? He had reportedly fallen ill in early March, with symptoms that "didn't seem to align with those frequently associated with COVID-19", as stated in the very same People article: 

Although Cordero fell ill in early March, his symptoms were initially intermittent and didn’t seem to align with those frequently associated with COVID-19. “He could not get out of bed, so tired, no energy, that was really his only symptom,” she told BuzzFeed News at the time.

According to the same article, Cordero's early symptoms were not consistent with the normal symptoms of COVID-19. The actor had fallen ill in early March, but only tested positive in late March, or early April... following two previous negatives. 

He Tested Negative Again, One Month Before His Death

A fourth Coronavirus test conducted by doctors came back negative for Nick Cordero in late April. This was reported in the exact same article: 

By April 24, Kloots had some good news to share with her husband’s fans: he had tested negative for COVID-19. However, hours later, she shared that doctors decided to put in a temporary pacemaker after Cordero began experiencing irregular heartbeats.

Nick Cordero died July 5. 

He died ten weeks after testing negative for the Coronavirus. Out of four COVID-19 tests, he tested negative three times. His latest test showed him cleared of the virus ten weeks before he died of "COVID-19 related" complications. To some, this is just another example of the mysterious and unknown nature of the virus, to others it's a sign of possibly unrelated illnesses and complications. 

Mathematically, Cordero tested negative for the virus 75% of the time that he was ill. That's either a sign of serious problems with COVID-19 testing kits, or a sign of something more problematic. Regardless, we need to be asking more questions. 

His Leg Was Amputated

The same article in question states that Cordero's leg needed to be amputated due to complications arising from COVID-19:

The following week, Kloots shared that her husband’s leg would need to be amputated, due to coronavirus complications. In the days following the amputation, Kloots told fans that they were “in a bit of waiting game,” sharing that doctors believed that the actor “should have woken up by now” after performing an MRI scan. She also said that doctors hoped to be able to take Cordero off of a ventilator in the coming days.

That's an interesting statement, since just one paragraph earlier, in the same article, People stated the following: 

Hours later, she learned that her husband had to go undergo emergency surgery, as a machine he had been placed on to help “support his heart and lungs” was “stopping blood flow to his right leg.”

Again, the math doesn't add up. Was it COVID-19 that caused the amputation, or the machine and medications he was placed on to help his heart and lungs? Believe it or not, the cause of his amputation does matter. 

In another article published at Page Six, it is stated that Cordero was also put on blood thinners and that those drugs may have caused the complication that resulted in the amputation: 

Cordero, 41, has been a patient at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles since April and struggled in his battle with coronavirus. Early last month, Cordero was fighting for his life and had his leg amputated due to a complication with blood thinners that the doctor were giving him.

Whether Nick Cordero's amputation was caused by COVID-19 or medications is an important factor in determining how serious Coronavirus really is. There's no doubt that doctors would consider this an important piece of information.

So, which is it? Was Cordero's leg amputated due to complications with COVID-19, or by complications caused by medications and his medical treatments? The answer would raise some serious problems and potentially answer some important questions about the virus and the treatments being administered to patients around the world. 

He Had A Lung Infection, Strokes, Heart Problems And Septic Shock

Cordero was reported to have two lung infections. One happened during his positive test for Coronavirus, the second happened after he had tested negative at the end of April. Coronavirus is known to cause a serious infection in the lungs during its later stages, but Cordero had been reported to have suffered from serious heart problems during his stay at the hospital. 

People reported that Cordero had not just developed a new infection, but that doctors had placed a pacemaker into his chest following an irregular heartbeat: 

By April 24, Kloots had some good news to share with her husband’s fans: he had tested negative for COVID-19. However, hours later, she shared that doctors decided to put in a temporary pacemaker after Cordero began experiencing irregular heartbeats.

Days later, the father of one "ended up getting an infection in his lungs" that spread to his blood, causing him to go into "a little bit of a septic shock" after developing a fever, according to Kloots. Cordero's doctors later told Kloots that her husbands lungs had become "severely damaged to look almost like he's been a smoker for 50 years."

Cordero's list of resulting health issues seem extensive. He suffered two strokes, an irregular heartbeat, major lung infections and septic shock. All of this is assumed to be a direct result of COVID-19, yet, his amputation seems to have been a direct result of the treatments that were administered by doctors. 

Since we know his amputation was the direct result of his treatments, we should also assume that some of his various other complications may have arisen from his treatments as well. It wouldn't seem so absurd to suggest that the very same machine and medications that were causing clotting in his leg—followed by failed treatment with blood thinners—could have caused the "mini strokes" that reportedly happened during his stay at the hospital: 

During Cordero's hospitalization for coronavirus complications, the actor also suffered "two mini strokes" and "needed resuscitation," according to Kloots. "He had no pre-existing health conditions. We do not know how he got COVID-19 but he did," she wrote in an Instagram post on May 8. "This disease does not only effect old people. This is real. A perfectly healthy 41 year old man!"

In most normal situations in which a patient is "a perfectly healthy 41 year old man", serious questions would arise from a patient experiencing blood clots, strokes and heart problems due to treatments being administered by doctors. In the case of his amputation, we have confirmation that the treatments were the causenot the Coronavirus. If medications and devices were causing blood clots to form in his leg, it would be natural to assume that those same medications and devices may have caused some of his other complications. 

Why is no one asking these questions?

Questions Are Not Wrong

Perhaps its fear that keeps journalists and politicians silent. It seems as though questions are forbidden in this age of hysteria and panic porn, but with the right questions, we could uncover some real, valuable answers. As the death rate declines in the United States, we should be asking more questions. 

There was a time when asking legitimate questions wasn't taboo. There was a time when legitimate questions shed light on serious problems. Coronavirus is real. It's not a hoax, but that doesn't mean there aren't some big players looking to take advantage of this time of uncertainty and fear.

In the end, avoiding controversial questions won't serve anyone. If treatments are causing more harm than good, we should know. If the Coronavirus is less fatal than we originally thought, we should know. Entire economies have been shut down, people have been pushed to the brink of bankruptcy and people have been separated from their loved ones. If we are doing something wrong, we should know.

Now is not the time to be afraid to ask questions.
