Reportedly, in connection with the spread of enterovirus infection in Turkey, seawater control is strengthened in the Crimea, and is being checked for the Coxsackieviruses.
The uncontrolled extraction of sand for the construction of the Kerch bridge represents an ecological problem as well. Mining technologies kill marine life and fauna.
