Hong Kong police has put out that social stability is of the utmost importance, and in the midst of the epidemic, all Force members remain dedicated to their duties. Police have set up cordon lines to restrict people from entering or leaving quarantine centres, it clarified. 'Officers have also been stationed at different entry points to assist with the implementation of quarantine orders. Spot checks will also be carried out to prevent any persons under mandatory home quarantine from leaving their residences without authorisation In situations where the confinees are posing a threat to public health by leaving their homes or flouting the orders from Department of Health officers, Police officers will intervene by taking law-enforcement action. Meanwhile, to crack down on opportunists who are cashing in on the epidemic, the Force will conduct intelligence-led operations to bring the scammers to justice. While all the people of Hong Kong have been taking concerted action to fight the epidemic, some ill-intentioned individuals have been spreading misinformation during this critical period'.
