The map of Australia without Victoria goes viral after Melbourne enters the second coronavirus block

Now it’s VEXIT: the map of Australia with Victoria cut off goes viral – after coronavirus cases have increased in Melbourne

  • Victoria has been cut off from a new map that has been circulating on Facebook
  • 36 north Melbourne suburbs were closed at midnight on Wednesday
  • The state has recorded 289 new cases since Monday and 77 infections on Thursday

Victoria has been brutally cut off from a new map of Australia that has gone viral online – while Melbourne begins its second coronavirus blockade.

The state has registered 289 new cases since Monday, with 36 suburbs north of Melbourne now closed to contain the epidemic.

The blockade will last for four weeks and took effect from 11.59pm on Wednesday, with locals invited to avoid any non-essential travel.

The map, which has been shared nearly 1,000 times on Facebook, shows the whole of Australia, but an empty space has been left between New South Wales and Tasmania.

“Download the new map of Australia”, read the post.

Many thought the edited map was hilarious, while others found the photo inappropriate.

“I’ve always wanted to tattoo exactly this image, I think I’ll make it,” said one person.

“Why not get rid of Tassie while we’re at it?” another joke.

“It’s not funny, we are stuck with it because of us,” said one.

‘How funny is it? People get sick, “someone wrote.

It comes after the Victorian government re-imposed residence orders at home for 36 suburbs in ten postal codes after recording 212 new cases of the deadly virus in three days.

But the virus has already left the embattled city and has spread across Australia, with an infected man traveling to Sydney and working in a Woolworths in Balmain.

Another infected person spent two weeks in a hotel quarantine in Melbourne before traveling to Darwin.

After only four weeks of freedom, those residents will be prohibited from leaving their homes except for work and school, shopping, caring and exercising daily.

Restaurants, gyms, pubs and all other non-essential services in the suburbs must once again close their doors. Affected companies will be compensated with a $ 5,000 government cash grant.

Residents of the ten postcodes will not be able to go on vacation and the government will announce a support package for interested tourism businesses on Friday.

The police will carry out orders with random vehicle checks similar to random breathing tests and distribute fines on the spot.

Prime Minister Daniel Andrews said the blockade was “deeply painful” and “damaging to businesses”, but insisted on the need.

“If we don’t take these steps, we will now block every postcode,” he said.

In Victoria there are 415 active cases with 20 patients in hospital and four in intensive care.

On Thursday alone, 77 new cases were discovered, the largest number since the peak of the pandemic on March 31st.

Of the 77 new cases, 13 are linked to outbreaks, 37 have been detected through routine tests and 27 further cases are under investigation.

Most cases are in a virus crisis, according to Victoria Brett Sutton’s Chief Health Officer.

‘One of the problems is that people move a little. Obviously now, with the restrictions in place, people should limit their movements to the maximum extent possible. ”
