While hospitalized, 55 year-old Judi Evans started to experience mild symptoms including fever, aches and a cough. Her publicist Howie Simon reported to the public that Evans almost had both of her legs amputated because of blood clots as a result of COVID-19 complications. Prior to this, she had been suffering from the repercussions of a horse incident, which left her with a broken collarbone, seven broken ribs, two chipped vertebra and a collapsed lung.
Variety furthers with a statement from her publicist saying, “However speaking to her on Sunday, she was in good spirits and back to Judi “humor” despite all these spiraling turn of events,” wrote Simon. “She has said she appreciates all the prayers for her and they’ve helped her mentally, physically and spiritually! She just wants to continue to test negative on COVID19 before she can go home and get the rest she so needs!!!”
