Rapist Harvey Weinstein has been tested positive for Corona Virus in the prison, US Media reported.

Weinstein, 68, is in prison in northern New York state after being sentenced to 23 years in jail for rape and sexual assault.

The fallen film producer’s diagnosis was first reported on Sunday evening by local paper the Niagara Gazette.

Weinstein’s spokespeople have declined to comment to US media on the subject.

He was convicted of raping ex-actress Jessica Mann in 2013. Nearly 90 women, including Angelina Jolie and Salma Hayek, have levelled sexual misconduct allegations against Weinstein, the Oscar-winning producer of “Shakespeare in Love” and numerous other critical and box office hits.
