All arrivals to Hong Kong from mainland China to face ‘compulsory quarantine’
Anyone arriving in Hong Kong from mainland China from Saturday will face a mandatory two-week quarantine, the city’s leader announced Wednesday, a measure aimed at reducing the spread of a deadly coronavirus.
Chief Executive Carrie Lam gave no details on how the measure would be implemented but said updates would be released in the coming days.
“The measure is harsh. But I believe after we say all arrivals have to be quarantined for 14 days from February 8 the number of arrivals will reduce,” Lam said.
