More than 50,000 migrant workers in Gulf nations are eagerly waiting to return to Sri Lanka amid the coronavirus crisis and jobless situation or pay cuts. Nearly 1.7 million Sri Lankans work abroad and majority are women who are employed as domestic workers or child governesses in households.

As per the Health Promotion Bureau, the number of positive coronavirus cases remains at 1,633, while 74 is undergoing hospital treatment. As per reports, ten people have died, and 801 cases have recovered, Daily Mirror reported.

The Sri Lanka Bureau of Foreign Employment (SLFEB) has stated following the mediation by the Sri Lankan government that the United Arab Emirates (UAE) government had consented to help expand the visas of Sri Lankan workers.

It also stated that there are a great many Sri Lankans whose visas have terminated, without occupations and homes due to the pandemic. Officials stated, we are continuing talks with various nations to help Sri Lankan workers in light of the pandemic crisis.

The SLFEB with support of community organizations abroad has helped in providing 15,000 Sri Lankan migrants with dry ration and medical kits. We are likewise putting forth attempts to negotiate with companies in individual nations not to lay off Sri Lankan workers amid coronavirus pandemic, authorities added.

A new report from the business-data company looking at the second quarter of venture capital results for global AI startups shows historically strong but declining investing rates for the upstart firms. During a pandemic and widespread recession, this is not a complete surprise; other areas of VC investment have also fallen in recent quarters.

from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog?
I’m not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty
quick. I’m thinking about making my own but I’m not sure where to begin. Do you have any points or suggestions?

I believe what you published was actually very logical.
However, what about this? suppose you were to write a killer headline?
I ain’t suggesting your information is not good., however what if you
added a headline that makes people desire more? I mean Sri Lankan expatriates infected with Covid-19 are thrice the number of local
cases is kinda plain. You should glance at Yahoo’s front
page and note how they create news headlines to grab viewers to click.
You might add a related video or a picture or two
to get people interested about what you’ve got to say.
In my opinion, it might make your posts a little livelier.
