(RepublicanNews.org) – Film producer and convicted sex offender Harvey Weinstein’s fall from grace appeared to take a turn for the worse this week, when prison officials isolated him from other prisoners with a 101-degree temperature. He’s currently serving a 23-year prison sentence in New York’s Wende Correctional Facility for a felony sexual act and rape.
Numerous media outlets reported that prison authorities were closely monitoring the former Hollywood giant’s condition after isolating him.

Sources told TMZ that Weinstein was tested for COVID-19 on November 17, but the results were still pending. His publicist and a prison spokesperson confirmed his high fever but declined to comment on whether he had the coronavirus.
Weinstein is particularly vulnerable to the virus due to his advanced age, obesity and a pre-existing heart condition. His representative, Juda Englemeyer, told reporters he would update them as additional information became available.
