Hong Kong protesters torch quarantine building over coronavirus panic


Protesters in Hong Kong set fire to a building the government had planned to use to quarantine victims of coronavirus amid panic over the spread of the disease and anger at the government’s response. They want the government to forbid new arrivals from the Chinese mainland. Hong Kong suffered 300 deaths during the SARS outbreak of 2003.
