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 12,367 suspected cases have been reported, and 6,063 COVID-19 tests have been performed, which in turn have recorded 2,513 negative and 3,550 p​ositive results.

Of the confirmed cases:
● 2319 patients have improved enough to be discharged, which represents a recovery rate of 65%.
● 438 patients are currently in self-isolation at home.
● 127 patients are hospitalized in an isolated ward.
● 30 patients are in intensive care. To date, 65 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,177 active workers have passed on, as well as 250 pensioners, 204 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, 8,019 patients have received remote care using videoconference software, and 3,081 of these patients have been found to have respiratory symptoms; 531 patients have received prescriptions, 1,556 mental health assessments have been made, and 2,851 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.​
