A top official from the Department of Labor and Employment confirmed on Sunday that it will bring home the 301 deceased Filipino migrant workers from Saudi Arabia, including those who have died due to Covid-19. 

The repatriation, according to Labor Secretary Silvestre Bello III will arrange the flights before the Kingdom’s deadline set on July 4. 

“Meron na kaming ini-schedule na iuuwi sila – yung may Covid-19 at natural death. Iuuwi natin sila probably, kasi binigyan tayo ng taning ng Saudi government hanggang July 4; hopefully, pwede namin kunin sila before July 4,” he told ABS-CBN’s TeleRadyo. 

Of the 301 remains, 145 of them died to Covid-19. The remaining died due to natural death.
