Hundreds of Venezuelans, who fled to neighboring Colombia during their country's economic crisis, are now returning home, pushed by the Novel Corona virus and Colombia's own pandemic woes. Colombian migration officials said that 600 people -- including 35 children and 167 women -- crossed the main border point at the Simon Bolivar International Bridge in the northeastern city of Cucuta, into Venezuela.
 
Although the border is officially closed as a measure taken to halt the spread of the Novel Corona virus, Colombia has opened a humanitarian corridor to allow Venezuelans to return home.  In recent years, Colombia has welcomed 1.8 million Venezuelans fleeing their country's economic and political collapse.
 
According to the United Nations, 4.9 million Venezuelans have fled their country, mainly to other South American nations and many need international aid due to the economic effects of the Coronavirus pandemic. More than 1,400 cases of COVID-19 have been reported in Colombia since 6th of March, including 35 deaths.
