Coronavirus- Harvey Weinstein tests positive in prison

The MeToo accused Hollywood producer and convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein has found to be tested positive for coronavirus while he was in the prison. 

According to Michael Powers, president of the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association. Harvey is now in isolation. 

Harvey was found guilty of rape and sexual assault last month & sentenced to 23 years in prison. His lawyers will appeal against the conviction.  

An officer who wants to keep his identity discreet has informed the Reuters news agency that Harvey is currently kept at the Wende Correctional Facility near Buffalo in upstate New York. 

While talking to Reuters, Mr. Powers told that several members of staff had been quarantined. He expressed concern for corrections officers who he claims lack proper protective equipment.

One of Harvey’s lawyer said his legal team is unaware 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.”

Harvey had spent time at Rikers Island before arriving at Wende, where he was treated for his heart problem and chest pains. 

The jurors found him guilty of the most serious charges of predatory assault. Many women came forward with allegations of sexual misconduct, which included rape, against him since the MeToo movement began against him in 2017.
