Disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein has been diagnosed with COVID-19, also known as the Coronavirus.
Weinstein who is 68 years old is now in isolation at Wende Correctional Facility in Western New York, state prison officials told CNHI newspapers on Sunday.
According to The Daily Beast, Weinstein is one of two inmates in the maximum-security prison in Erie County who have tested positive, the officials said. A New York State Department of Corrections spokesperson confirmed to The Daily Beast two inmates at Wende Correctional Facility have contracted COVID-19 but did not name the two individuals.
Juda Engelmayer, Weinstein’s spokesperson, told The Daily Beast on Sunday that “our team… has not heard anything like that yet.” Engelmayer also could not confirm if the Pulp Fiction producer was currently in isolation. His attorney, Arthur Aidala, said he was also unaware of any diagnosis.
