YPSA has conducted a survey on the Socio-Economic Impact of COVID-19 on Returnee Migrants in Bangladesh. The survey was conducted online. A total of 55 foreign returnees took part in the survey. Most migrants have returned from the Middle East and Europe. And about one thousand migrants have died of Coronavirus at home and abroad. Research revealed that migrants who remain abroad are at risk of unemployment, hunger, housing crisis and infection as a result of lockdowns or blockades. As well as migrants who returned they faced social discrimination, isolation, economic crisis, extreme uncertainty and instability.
Meanwhile, governments and developing partners have taken several steps and action which have created trust and comfort among the people. But many feel that these initiatives are not enough and should be worked out in more comprehensively.
