BREAKING: Harvey Weinstein is placed in isolation with a 101 degree fever as prison doctors suspect he has coronavirus
Harvey Weinstein is experiencing a 101 degree fever and has been placed in isolation as doctors suspect he contracted coronavirus, a new report claims.
Law enforcement sources disclosed the dire state of Weinstein’s health to TMZ on Tuesday, saying the disgraced movie mogul is doing ‘very poorly’.
They said Weinstein, 68, has exhibited tell-tale symptoms of COVID-19 and was placed in isolation for 72 hours while he awaits the results of a test performed this morning.
If the test comes back positive he will be transferred to the hospital at the Wende Correctional Facility, where he is serving out a 23-year sentence for rape and sexual assault.
Weinstein suffers from a variety of health problems that could put him at risk for a severe case of coronavirus, including diabetes and high blood pressure.
Back in March there were multiple reports that he had contracted the virus, but TMZ’s sources said he was never officially diagnosed at the time.
This is a developing story.
