Harvey Weinstein, 68, has been isolated in the highest-risk prison in upstate New York after testing positive for coronavirus. The Hollywood producer, winner of more than 80 Oscars, gave rise after his first complaints to the famous #metoo movement and had just begun his 23-year sentence after being found guilty of rape and sexual assault in the third degree.
Confirmed by Deadline according to state system officials, Weinstein was reportedly being isolated at Wende Prison outside Buffalo. Another inmate also tested positive, according to The Niagara Gazette, an Albany newspaper.
Despite the fact that the center will not comment on the prisoner's health due to its privacy policies, according to Variety, among the approximately 43,000 prisoners in the state, two cases are already confirmed with the Covid-19 and both are in Wende prison.
Apparently, the famed billionaire producer already had the Covid-19 when he entered the jail last week and was from the Rikers Island prison. It must be remembered that Harvey Weinstein had a recent operation at Bellevue hospital for heart problems, during his stay in the last mentioned prison, where he awaited trial and his health has been in decline in recent months.
More than eighty women accused Weinstein of sexual harassment, assault, or rape. In a list of incidents from his past, 18 reports of rape were included and according to the reports of these women, the producer quoted them under the pretext of talking about his career in the celluloid world and there he took the opportunity to demand their favors back.
