Police could arrest people refusing quarantine

Emergency coronavirus laws could give police powers to arrest sick people refusing to stay in quarantine. The government will have the power to force people into quarantine, close shops, pubs and restaurants if necessary to tackle the spread of coronavirus. Health Secretary Matt Hancock said emergency powers would be passed into law this week. Asked if the laws could involve police or army personnel on the streets, closing borders or arresting people who refuse to stay in quarantine, he confirmed it could.
