Corona test from ex-Hollywood mogul negative
Former film producer Harvey Weinstein is not sick with Covid-19. A corresponding test turned out negative.
The former film mogul Harvey Weinstein (68) was not infected with the corona virus, as US media unanimously report. A joint statement by the von Weinstein spokesman and a representative of the prison authorities said that one could explain “that Mr. Weinstein’s fever has dropped”, but that he is still being “closely monitored” according to “Los Angeles Times”. In addition, one could “report that he currently has no Covid-19”. Weinstein was isolated and tested on Tuesday morning, according to media reports.
Not in the hospital, still in prison
The 68-year-old still has “an abundance” of health problems that are supposed to get worse and for which he needs to be treated. He is currently being looked after by medical staff at the Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison in New York State where Weinstein is being held.
Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison in February 2020. A jury found him guilty of sexual assault and rape. He was also indicted on six other counts in California in October.
