Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the novel coronavirus. Weinstein, 68, is in prison in northern New York state after being sentenced to 23 years in jail for rape and sexual assault.

The fallen film producer’s diagnosis was first reported on last Sunday evening. Weinstein’s spokespeople have declined to comment to US media on the subject.Weinstein was transferred on last Wednesday to a prison near Buffalo, 350 miles northwest of New York City.Prior to his transfer, he stayed at Rikers Island prison and a Manhattan hospital, where he was treated for chest pains.Crowded US prisons have the potential to become hotbeds for coronavirus infections. Last week, guards at Rikers and New York’s Sing Sing prison tested positive for the virus. Weinstein was convicted in February of a criminal sexual act in the first degree and rape in the third degree, while being cleared of predatory sexual assault charges.
