"Guys we might have to change our hashtag. Nick, dada, is awake!" she told her followers. "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," E! Online quoted Amanda as saying.

Elaborating on the actor's health, Kloots said that he is now able to follow commands and is barely able to open his eyes because of the coronavirus related weakness in the body.

After struggling with treatments and a leg amputation for almost a month, this comes as a major development in the health condition of the actor.
