The Australian Biological Institute is an organization featured in Dead Island which deals with biohazardous outbreaks. It has set up quarantined areas around Moresby in an attempt to contain the Pathogen HK outbreak, caused by a stronger variant of Kuru.
Despite the Institute's best attempts, the virus spread throughout the city and reached the outskirts of other places around Banoi Island. A number of the denizens became infected, while others who weren't infected yet sought to take advantage of the chaos that ensued.
- It's advised to be careful when approaching the quarantined area. Numerous infected spawn around here and can quickly overtake the player if they're not careful.
- The Institute had already set up plenty of safety places on the high roofs, which enables the players to stay on the high places for their safety, if they want to reduce their attracting the attention of the infected.
- You can find a small alley leading you into the quarantine zone directly without facing the high barricading walls. In other words, the path is not blocked by walls. This could be one of the minor reasons why the attempt of the Institute to contain the virus inside the Quarantine Zone had failed, as zombies can still get out of the quarantine zone from the alley.
