 The Hong Kong police have intercepted five people and will place 36 others on the wanted list for contravening quarantine orders during compulsory quarantine, the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) government said on Sunday.

Since the introduction of compulsory quarantine arrangements for persons arriving at Hong Kong from foreign places on March 19, the HKSAR government has been enforcing the regulation with full force in the past two days, said a spokesman of the HKSAR government.
