The country is going through a dangerous crisis, with millions of people going through a self-imposed eclipse, while some states are under a blockade. New York is the state with the highest number of deaths and currently has more than 15,000 registered cases. As a nation prepares for an increasing number of deaths, Rose’s words were almost sympathetic to the man many called a monster.
Some say they think it’s karma that Harvey Weinstein has the coronavirus. It seems that since she lost her place in this industry, she has suffered many health problems. Weinstein was often seen limping around the wharf with walkers and he looked like he was in a lot of pain.
At the age of 68 and with associated heart disease, Harvey Weinstein is the leading candidate for serious coronavirus complications. We don’t know exactly what day he’s sick, because recent studies show that day six is a turning point in for better or worse.
What do you think of the news that Harvey Weinstein has the coronavirus?
