Unlike the authorities of the neighboring resort region, Krasnodar Territory, the Crimean authorities did not impose special restrictions on the accommodation of tourists in hotels.

Today, June 30, the head of the regional department of Rospotrebnadzor Natalya Penkovskaya announced that Indian and British strains of infection were detected in Crimea.

"According to the results of sequencing in the territory of the Republic of Crimea, both traditional strains of the new coronavirus infection and strains caused by the British and Indian viruses are isolated", - RBC quotes Natalia Penkovskaya as saying. According to her, there is a "mixed circulation" of strains on the peninsula, in connection with which she called for compliance with restrictive measures. It is also alarming that younger residents of Crimea from 18 to 49 years old are increasingly falling ill with coronavirus.

The fact that an Indian strain of coronavirus (delta strain) appeared in Russia, the head of Rospotrebnadzor Anna Popova announced at the end of May, more than 500 people were sick with the British strain by that time. Among the most common symptoms of the Indian variant are nausea, loss of appetite and hearing, and pain in the abdomen and joints. He, like the British strain, is more infectious and more deadly.

On June 22, an even more dangerous Delta Plus strain was identified in India. It differs from previous mutations by an even higher rate of spread and the property of more damaging lung cells. On June 29, Rospotrebnadzor reported that such a variant of the coronavirus had already been found in Russia.

According to official data, over the past day in Crimea, 294 cases of infection were detected, seven people died. For the entire time of the pandemic, 48,386 people fell ill here, 1505 of them died.
