SINGER Wang Leehom apologised for allegedly breaching a seven-day self-health management order, which is required in Taiwan, after observing a 14-day quarantine period following his return from the United States, reported Oriental Daily.

Wang apologised and thanked everyone for their kind reminders. He admitted to being negligent, adding that he took full responsibility for his mistake.
Hsu also made a public apology. She explained that it was a gathering of good friends and acknowledged that they neglected the pandemic prevention regula- tions.
