He has been placed in isolation for 72 hours while he awaits the results of a test performed this morning.

The 68-year-old is reportedly running a  101 degree fever and doctors suspect he contracted coronavirus COVID-19.

Law enforcement said in a statement that the disgraced movie mogul is doing ‘very poorly’.

If the COVID-19 test comes back positive he will be transferred to the hospital at the Wende Correctional Facility, a maximum security prison east of Buffalo, New York, where he is serving out a 23-year sentence for rape and sexual assault.

Weinstein suffers from health issues that could put him at risk for a severe case of coronavirus, including diabetes, heart problems and high blood pressure.

In March 2020, while incarcerated in Wende Correctional Facility in western New York during the COVID-19 pandemic, Weinstein tested positive for COVID-19. He reportedly did not show symptoms of the disease, was placed in isolation at the prison and on April 1, 2020 was stated to be recovering.
