United Nations: Corona virus epidemics have slowed global migration by about 30 percent, according to a United Nations report released late Friday.
The report, titled “International Migration 2020”, states that two-thirds of registered migrants live in only 20 countries, including 51 million international migrants in 2020.
Then came Germany with 16 million, Saudi Arabia with 13 million, Russia with 12 million and Britain with nine million.
In 2020, India tops the list of countries with the largest diaspora, with 1.8 million Indians living outside their home country.
Other countries with a large international community include Mexico and Russia, 11 million each, China 10 million and Syria 800,000.
About half of the international migrants lived in the region from which they came, and is the largest source of regional migration in Europe. Seventy percent of European-born immigrants live in another European country.
