Could folk be used in this sentence or is there some restriction on that?

Folk is probably the most precise translation for people. Wonder why it's not accepted.

In this particular sentence, "mennesker" would be better but "folk" would be better than personer -- personer creates a distance between the speaker and the people they are referring to, as if they aren't "people" themselves.

"people" also translates into "mennesker" not just "personer"
