• Harvey Weinstein's COVID-19 test came back negative, his rep confirmed
  • Weinstein's spokesperson said his fever has gone down
  • He was placed in isolation for 72 hours at the Wende Correctional Facility earlier this week

Harvey Weinstein tested negative for COVID-19, his reps said Thursday.

Weinstein’s publicist Juda Engelmayer and Craig Rothfeld, his authorized rep from the New York Department of Corrections and Community Supervision and Department of Health, issued a statement to Page Six, saying that his fever has “dropped.” The disgraced movie mogul is currently showing no symptoms of COVID-19.

Though Weinstein’s test from Tuesday came back negative, he is being closely monitored for other “underlying health issues.” Engelmayer also said that Weinstein’s health is getting worse with each passing day and the Miramax founder requires immediate treatment.

“We can report that Mr. Weinstein’s fever has dropped but is still being closely monitored. We can also report at this time that he does not have COVID-19,” the spokesperson said. “Mr. Weinstein continues to be very closely monitored due to the plethora of underlying health issues which are continuing to decline, get worse, and need treatment.”

The update comes a couple of days after TMZ reported that Weinstein is “doing poorly” after experiencing a “101-degree” fever along with other health issues.

Law enforcement sources with direct knowledge told the outlet that doctors were convinced that he had contracted coronavirus inside the prison facility. Weinstein was placed in isolation for 72 hours at the Wende Correctional Facility in New York, where he is currently serving a 23-year sentence for sexual assault and rape.

In March, it was reported that the former film producer tested positive for COVID-19. At the time, Michael Powers, president of the New York State Correctional Officers and Police Benevolent Association, said that Weinstein had been placed in isolation.

This is not the first time Weinstein has experienced health problems after being found guilty in the landmark “Me Too” case. The producer managed to evade jail as soon as the verdict was announced and complained of chest pains and heart palpitations.

His representative, at the time, also noted that the visit to the hospital was just a “precautionary measure” before he could be taken to jail.

Weinstein is still facing sex crime charges in Los Angeles for which he has yet to submit a plea. These charges stem from rape and assault accusations that allegedly occurred in 2013. He faces up to 28 years in prison.
