In the wake of coronavirus, a group of protesters set alight on Sunday the lobby of a newly built residential building in Hong Kong that authorities planned to use as a quarantine facility, as public fears about the coronavirus outbreak intensified.
While responding to this incident, a twitter user wrote: “As many cities in the mainland seal themselves off, HK refuses to consider a temporary closure of the border with the rest of China, as many are demanding. Instead it has set up a quarantine facility near a populated area. Protests have erupted.”
