Lawmakers among party guests sent to HK quarantine

At least 100 people in Hong Kong including top government officials have been sent into quarantine after they were found to have attended a large birthday party, BBC reported.

Leader Carrie Lam had said she was "disappointed" to hear about the event that involved the city's elite.

Parties like these were not illegal at the time though the government warned against them and issued specific rules.

Hong Kong imposed strict new Covid restrictions this week.

Dining-in after 18:00 has been banned and venues like bars and gyms will be closed, after a small local outbreak of the Omicron variant was discovered in the city.
