Base sa datos ng DFA, 43,893 sea-based Filipinos, at 58,626 land-based Filipinos ang nagbalik bansa dahil na-stranded o nawalan ng trabaho bunsod ng pandemya.

"This week, the DFA brought home a total of 8,895 OFs from the Middle East, 1,806 from the Asia-Pacific, 677 from Europe and 644 from the Americas. Of these repatriates, 1,400 were brought home from Malaysia, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia on board four DFA-chartered flights, paid for by the Assistance-to-Nationals Fund," pahayag ng DFA sa isang press release.

Sa susunod na buwan, inaasahang aabot pa sa 150,000 na manggagawa mula abroad ang uuwi sa bansa, ayon kay Hans Leo Cacdac, administrator ng Overseas Workers Welfare Administration.
