A CORONAVIRUS outbreak at Rikers Island reportedly infected around 40 inmates and staff at the hellhole that housed Harvey Weinstein.

VOCAL New York, a grassroots advocacy organization, revealed that 21 inmates tested positive for COVID-19, as cases in the US top 25,000 with over 300 deaths.

“Population in infectious disease unit has doubled from 28 to 56 in past 4 days,” VOCAL tweeted this evening, slamming Mayor De Blasio for a “totally insufficient to full blown crisis.”

A spokesperson for the organization told The Sun “it’s a rapidly growing number.”

“They just started testing on the island yesterday, I believe,” they said. “What I saw was 21 incarcerated people and 17 staff. I’m sure it’s growing by the hour.”

Weinstein was being held at the infected facility before he was officially booked into Wende Correctional Facility on Wednesday the day before his 68th birthday.

It was feared he would be released when The New York City Board of Corrections called for the release of inmates who are at a higher risk of contracting the virus. The news comes as over 50 NYPD cops tested positive for the deadly disease but only one has been hospitalized, according to NYPD Commissioner Dermot Shea.

The NYC police force are currently dealing with the biggest outbreak in the US, as cases there top 10,000 with at least 80 deaths in-state as of March 21.
