Convicted sex offender and former Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for the novel coronavirus.

The Niagara Gazette cited "officials connected to the state prison system" in New York.

However, Business Insider has not yet been able to independently confirm the report.

Also, Weinstein's spokesperson says hat the former producer is unaware of any such diagnosis.

Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison on March 11, two weeks after a jury convicted him of sexual assault and rape.
