Earlier this month, a woman in the Australian city of Cairns scaled down two balconies and kicked in a door to escape quarantine.
Now, an Australian man in Perth has gone one step further: he made a makeshift rope tying bedsheets together and descended from the window of the fourth-floor room in the hotel where he was quarantined.
The man arrived in the city from Brisbane but was told he could not enter the city under strict anti-virus rules.
The man was told to leave the state within 48 hours and taken to a hotel for temporary quarantine, but just before 1am on Tuesday (17:00 GMT on Monday) he escaped.
Police nabbed the man across town about 8 hours later, and charged him with stepping out of line, providing misinformation in the process.
He was 39 years old and tested negative for the coronavirus.
