And then there's Nick Cordero
Coronavirus: Broadway star Nick Cordero has leg amputated due to COVID-19 complications
The surgery came on the 18th day of Cordero’s sedation in an intensive care unit, where the Tony Award-nominated actor has been experiencing clotting issues in his right leg, CNN reported.
Kloots also told her social media followers that the blood thinners Cordero was prescribed to combat the clotting issues began to adversely affect his blood pressure and resulted in internal bleeding, prompting Saturday’s surgery.
Risks of ECMO
There are potential complications that are associated with being on ECMO:
Blood Clots: Blood can clot within the ECMO machine, the tubes, and in the patient – resulting in a need to change out the circuit, momentarily causing a loss of support. Loss of blood flow can develop in the arms or legs, requiring procedures to improve blood flow, or in rare cases, result in the need for amputation.

As if there wasn't enough to worry about. It looks like doctors are getting patients in the 30's, 40's and 50's getting blood clots and causing strokes because of COVID19.

We know too little about the virus. I remember reading an article that theorized that some of the young fit people with no preexisting conditions dying from it could be genetic disposition.
