Zero Cycles on Singular Varieties and Their Desingularisations

We use pro cdh-descent of $K$-theory to study the relationship between the zero cycles on a singular variety $X$ and those on its desingularisation $X'$. We prove many cases of a conjecture of S. Bloch and V. Srinivas, and relate the Chow groups of $X$ to the Kerz--Saito Chow group with modulus of $X'$ relative to its exceptional fibre.
