Overseas Pakistanis and COVID-19

The Socio-economic registries in Pakistan have the database where the data can be filtered for overseas Pakistani laborers. These simulations can be run and a valuable dataset/ information may be provided to the relevant ministries for their consumption and consequent support to blue-collared overseas who lost their jobs due to pandemic. The relief provided in this regard (to their families back at home) may help to survive the economic shock due to job loss.
