At least 1.3 million workers in Britain have left the country because of the unfavorable situation of the coronavirus pandemic, which has affected employment. 700,000 of them are migrants (8% of the country’s population).
This is stated in a study by the Center of Excellence for Economic Statistics.
It is noted that most of the job cuts were in the hospitality sector, where foreigners work.
The study also said that most of the burden of job losses during the pandemic fell on workers who came to the country.
If finally confirmed by the authorities, it would be the biggest mass exodus from Britain since World War II.
By the way, Britain was the first in the world to be vaccinated against the coronavirus with a drug from AstraZeneca and Oxford University.
