Harvey Weinstein should be on his way to Los Angeles to face several more charges of sexual misconduct, but his extradition to the golden state has been placed on hold amid the sweeping coronavirus outbreak.

"The virus has delayed the processing of the extradition paperwork," said Greg Risling, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office per Page Six. "There is no time estimate on when he will appear in a Los Angeles courtroom."

Three women have accused the ex-Hollywood exec of sexual misconduct. He faces two counts of sexual battery by restraint and one count each of forcible rape, forcible oral copulation and sexual penetration.

Weinstein was sentenced to 23 years in prison back in February by a judge for raping a woman and sexually assaulting another woman.

"I feel remorse for this situation. I feel it deep in my heart. I'm really trying to be a better person," Weinstein said at the time, addressing his victims.
