Game of Thrones star Sophie Turner had a few choice words for Evangeline Lilly's controversial approach to the coronavirus outbreak.
7 Eyewitness News has learned that two inmates at the Wende Correctional Facility have tested positive for COVID-19.
Variety reporter Elizabeth Wagmeister tweeted that Weinstein's spokesperson learned of the report online.

"Given Mr. Weinstein's state of health, we are of course concerned, if this is the case, and we are vigilantly monitoring the situation", said lawyer Imran Ansari, who is based in NY. "I can't tell you what I don't know", the producer's personal rep added.
The Oscar-winning producer of 'Shakespeare in Love, ' was convicted of raping an aspiring actress in 2013 and forcibly performing oral sex on a TV and film production assistant in 2006.
The country, which is already in a virtual lockdown, has witnessed the third-highest number of COVID-19 cases after China and Italy. Weinstein had been in and out of the hospital leading up to trial and between conviction and sentencing.
Weinstein was tested at Bellevue Hospital when he developed a cough there while being treated for a spike in his blood pressure following his March 11 sentencing, a source familiar with the matter told The Post.
