Hong Kong government announced that starting at midnight on March 19, all arriving passengers will be placed under a two-week quarantine and medical surveillance in an attempt to prevent more spread of the COVID-19 disease.

Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam said that of 57 new cases Hong Kong recorded in the past two weeks, 50 were arrivals from overseas.

Electronic wristbands connected to a smartphone app will be used as part of the city’s effort to enforce quarantines and make sure people actually staying at home. The measure was designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in Hong Kong.
