A woman who caught coronavirus in Croatia moaned about the “consistent” phone calls from Track and Trace after returning home following her holiday abroad.
On TikTok, she uploaded a video before cutting to a string of screenshots showing the missed calls on her phone and a message warning her that she had been infected.
On her video, she wrote: “When you catch corona in Croatia and track and trace come after u.”
The video was captioned: “The consistent phone calls are worse than having rona.”
In the comments, the woman said she had visited Split, in Croatia, and that seven of her friends had also tested positive for the virus.

But she said she “wouldn’t even know” that she had it after displaying no symptoms, adding “good job we got tested.”
The group made the most of their holiday overseas trip with a TikTok video obtained by Mirror Online showing the young women posing for photographs together while another clip shows a packed Croatian bar.
Other videos showed she has also visited Spain and France this summer.
Currently, all travellers returning from Croatia, France and Spain must self-isolate for 14 days after restrictions were imposed on holidaymakers.
The video has attracted hundreds of comments – with many criticising the women.
One person wrote: “Imagine being braindead to joke about this.”
Another added: “That’s embarrassing, state of you.”
But she defended herself in the comments, saying that she had spent 30 minutes on the phone and filled out the online form.
She added: “Just to be clear to everyone bugging me, I did give them all the information they needed on the first time they called me on day 1 of isolation.”
In response to a comment accusing her of “bragging”, she replied: “Pahahahaha it’s not bragging, it’s called a joke lighten up, but they reallyyyy do pester you when you’ve already done what they asked.”
And she added that her holiday was “1000%” worth it.
While the rate of infection in Croatia remains low compared to other European destinations, cases have been increasing, with 12,285 overall infections and 203 deaths.
The country reported the highest new daily cases since the crisis began on September 9, with 369 new infections.
Croatia, Austria and Trinidad and Tobago were all removed from the ‘safe’ list on August 20, with those travelling to the UK from these countries required to quarantine for two week after returning home.
The measures came into effect from 4am on August 22, leading to packed flights as holidaymakers tried to swerve two weeks isolation.
It comes after 11 teenagers in in Plymouth, Devon, tested positive for Covid-19 after a holiday abroad in Zante.
Plymouth City Council leader Tudor Evans described the string of positive tests as a “wake up call” as she warned holidayakers to take care.
