Health Report on PEMEX Patients and Workers Affected by COVID-19

​​​Petróleos Mexicanos (PEMEX) reports that, of a total population of approximately 750,000 people (comprised of workers, pensioners and their families), to date 10,282 suspected cases have been reported, and 4,803 COVID-19 tests have been performed, which in turn have recorded 2,018 negative and 2,785 positive results. 

Of the confirmed cases:​
● 1701 patients have improved enough to be discharged.
● 453 patients are currently in self-isolation at home.
● 118 patients are hospitalized in an isolated ward.
● 25 patients are in intensive care. To date, 49 of the patients admitted in the intensive care unit have improved enough to be discharged from the hospital and continue receiving treatment at home.
In accordance with the policy of the State-owned productive company, which states that its workers are its most valuable asset, the integrated prevention strategy against the spread of Covid-19 has succeeded in containing the spread of this disease among the workers. Regrettably, to date, 142 active workers have passed on, as well as 181 pensioners, 160 family members, and 5 external patients.
Through its campaign titled "PEMEX Closer To You", we have provided healthcare and medical support to pensioners and family members from home. Healthcare professionals keep in touch with their patients remotely, providing healthcare and following up on their conditions using video messaging services.
Currently, 7,156 patients have received remote care using videoconference software, and 2,793 of these patients have been found to have respiratory symptoms; 475 patients have received prescriptions, 1,309 mental health assessments have been made, and 2,579 patients have received care for other conditions.
PEMEX hereby acknowledges the responsibility, discipline and solidarity of the oil workers’ community during this pandemic, especially the medical staff working for Pemex Healthcare Services, for their outstanding work in looking after the company’s greatest asset: its workers and their families.  ​
