Harvey Weinstein has tested positive for Covid-19.
In a statement, the sexual offender media mogul turned just sexual offender said he now intends to self-isolate for the next 23 years. He said the move is further evidence of what a ‘thoroughly decent, public minded and innocent man’ he is.
As a man of nearly seventy who is in ill health, Weinstein is considered high-risk.
Mainly to young women looking for a career in acting.
He’ll now be practising social distancing.
With practice being the operative word for a man who has always struggled with the concept of personal space.
Weinstein is currently detained in New York where strict measures have been put in place to keep people apart from one another.
These include a new law to ensure that doddery rapists are kept at least 2 metres from their walking frame at all times.
Covid-19 is a virus that preys on the most vulnerable and, left unchecked, will attack people at an alarming rate putting them at risk and potentially causing long term, life changing problems.
In a statement Covid-19 said it was ‘delighted’ to have finally found Weinstein who it described as ‘an inpsiration’.
