Last week, a 48-year-old man became the first police officer in Hongkong to be diagnosed with COVID-19. As a result, 59 of his colleagues who had attended the same retirement party as he did were placed under quarantine.
It had also led some to wonder if it might have been the same banquet where big stars like Jackie Chan, Eric Tsang, Julian Cheung, and more were filmed getting all buddy-buddy with police officers... which made the whole thing controversial for more than one reason.
This then led to speculation that the celebs were among those who had been quarantined as well. However, the rumours were put to rest when it was discovered that the events took place in two completely different districts that are about 30 minutes apart by car.
