Harvey Weinstein Has Reportedly Tested Positive For Coronavirus

Weinstein was transferred to Wende Correctional Facility on March 18. That's according to unnamed sources who spoke to The Niagara Gazette and Deadline.

The report was made by state prison officials to CNHI newspapers on the condition of anonymity today, per the Niagara Gazette.

Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the COVID-19 novel coronavirus, according to several reports.

The NYS Department of Corrections and Commuity Supervision (DOCCS) wouldn't identify either inmate by name, nor would it comment on their medical records. A spokesperson for Weinstein told Heavy that he has not heard anything about his client contracting the virus.

Weinstein's publicist and legal team could not confirm Weinstein's medical status as of early Sunday evening. During his trial, he had been alternating his time between Rikers Island and a New York City hospital, where he was treated for high blood pressure and chest pains. "I can't tell you what I don't know".

Weinstein turned 68 on Thursday.

Weinstein faced a maximum possible sentence of 29 years, after a jury determined that Weinstein forced a sex act on former production assistant Mimi Haleyi in 2006 and raped former actress Jessica Mann in 2013.

Almost 90 women, including Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek, have leveled sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein, the Oscar-winning producer of numerous critical and box office hits.
