Harvey Weinstein Isolated & Closely Monitored In Prison Due To High Fever, Awaiting COVID-19 Results
The coronavirus has shown us that it can reach anyone at anytime if proper precautions aren’t taken and now former producer and convicted rapist Harvey Weinstein, 68, may have fallen ill because of the virus.
Reports state that Juda Englemeyer, Weinstein’s publicist, and Craig Rothfield, a state department of health representative said they could not confirm nor deny if Weinstein has coronavirus, but the infamous producer has been tested and now awaits the results.
While serving his 23-year prison sentence at Wende Correctional Facility in Alden, NY, Harvey Weinstein has been placed in a 72-hour isolation and ‘closely monitored,’ as he has sustained a high fever, according to a source.
“We can confirm that Mr. Weinstein has a fever, and is being closely monitored by the excellent medical staff at Wende CF for which the entire legal defense team is grateful. It should come as no surprise that Weinstein has numerous maladies and conditions including a heart condition high blood pressure and spinal stenosis.”
As recently reported, the District Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles announced earlier this month that the disgraced film exec had been formally charged with more forced sex assault counts. He’s accused of raping one woman at a hotel between September 2004 and September 2005. He’s also accused of raping a second woman twice in November 2009 and November 2010.
