“Thanks to measures against illegal migration, these statistics fell by 51 percent over the last year. If in 2019 this figure was 14,834, in 2020 it dropped to 7317,” Head of the State Migration Service Vusal Huseynov said at an online press conference following the results of 2020, APA reports.

According to him, accommodation in detention centers for illegal migrants has decreased by 73 percent - 1,237 people in 2019 and 332 people in 2020.

“Since the detention center is an enclosed space, all hygiene measures were taken, not a single detainee was registered to be infected with the coronavirus,” he said.
