There is a tendency for the virus to cause blood clots in some patients. This affects major blood vessels of the body and can lead to localized ischemia due to diminished blood supply to the part. If the part starts turning blue and the cells die, the treatment is amputation of the deranged part. Broadway star Nick Cordero also suffered a similar problem and his one leg was amputated. He was in a coma for so many days and is now recovering but very slowly.
