Producer Harvey Weinstein Tested Positive for COVID-19World | March 23, 2020, Monday // 11:39| views
Former producer Harvey Weinstein, who was recently sentenced to 23 years in prison for sexual assault and rape, is infected with the new coronavirus, AFP and Reuters reported.
Weinstein is being held in isolation at the Wende Prison, said Michael Powers, New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association. He is concerned about police officers working there who are not well equipped. Several staff members are quarantined.
Harvey Weinstein was taken to the Wende prison near Buffalo, New York, on Wednesday last week. Previously, he was at Rikers Island Prison in New York. A lawyer for Weinstein said his legal team had not been informed of the coronavirus diagnosis.
Imran Ansari said: "Given Mr Weinstein's state of health, we are of course concerned, if this is the case, and we are vigilantly monitoring the situation."
