Harvey Weinstein has contracted coronavirus, according to TMZ.
The disgraced movie mogul was one of the two inmates in the Wende Correctional Facility in New York to have been infected. He had recently been moved from Rikers Island after his conviction for rape and sexual assault.
It’s not clear when Weinstein contracted the viral infection, but he had been in isolation since his arrival to Rikers Island. Sources also say that he hasn’t had contact with his family or lawyers since the diagnosis.
Weinstein has been in ill-health for a while, looking frail and weak and needing the assistance of aides and a walker. Early this year, he was hospitalized for chest pains and received cardiac treatment.
