59 Hong Kong police quarantined after meal with virus colleague

Dozens of Hong Kong police officers have been placed in quarantine after attending a banquet with a colleague who later tested positive for the new coronavirus, officials said Friday. The news prompted celebrations among some pro-democracy protesters, a vivid illustration of how deeply polarised the city has become after months of rallies and thousands of arrests last year. Health officials said four officers as well as the infected policeman’s wife and mother-in-law showed symptoms of illness.
