The latest Migration and Development Brief provides a prognosis of how the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic might affect global trends in international economic migration and remittances in 2020 and 2021. The economic crisis induced by COVID-19 could be long, deep, and pervasive when viewed through a migration lens. Lockdowns, travel bans,and social distancing have brought global economic activities to a near standstill. Host countries face additional challenges in many sectors, such as health and agriculture, that depend on the availability of migrant workers. Migrants face the risk of contagion and also the possible loss of employment, wages,and health insurance coverage.
