Victoria was brutally cut off from a new map of Australia that went viral online – when Melbourne started blocking the second Corona virus.
The state has registered 289 new cases since Monday. 36 suburbs north of Melbourne have now been closed to curb the outbreak.
The ban lasts four weeks and came into effect on Wednesday at 11:59 p.m. Locals are encouraged to avoid unnecessary trips.
The map, shared almost 1,000 times on Facebook, shows the whole of Australia, but an empty space has been left between NSW and Tasmania.

"Please download the new map of Australia," read the post.
Many found the edited card funny, while others found the image inappropriate.
"I've always wanted to tattoo this exact picture on myself, I think I can do it," said one person.
"Why not get rid of Tassie while we're at it?" another joked.
"It is not funny that we hold onto it without fault," said one.

& # 39; How is that funny? People get sick, ”someone wrote.
This happened after the Victorian government reordered 36 suburbs in ten zip codes after registering 212 new cases of the deadly virus in three days.
But the virus has already left the competitive city and spread across Australia. An infected man travels to Sydney and works for a Woolworths in Balmain.
Another infected person spent two weeks in the hotel quarantine in Melbourne before traveling to Darwin.
After only four weeks of freedom, these residents are prohibited from leaving their homes, except for work and school, grocery shopping, care and daily exercise.
Restaurants, gyms, pubs and all other non-essential services in the suburbs have to close their doors again. Affected companies are compensated with a government grant of $ 5,000.
Residents of the ten zip codes are not allowed to go on vacation, and the government will announce a support package for affected tourism companies on Friday.
The police will enforce the orders with random vehicle checks similar to random breath tests and will hand out fines on the spot.
Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said the ban was "deeply painful" and "harmful to businesses," but insisted that it was necessary.
"If we don't take these steps now, we'll block every zip code," he said.

In Victoria there are 415 active cases with 20 patients in the hospital and four in the intensive care unit.
77 new cases were discovered on Thursday alone – the largest number since the pandemic peaked on March 31.
Of the 77 new cases, 13 are related to outbreaks, 37 have been discovered through routine testing, and 27 other cases are under investigation.
According to Brett Sutton, Victoria's chief health officer, most of the cases are virus hotspots.
“One of the problems is that people move a little bit. Obviously, given the restrictions in place, people should limit their movement as much as possible. & # 39;
