Summary/Abstract: One of the main results of the health crisis caused by the expansion of the coronavirus in Mexico is the plunge of the economic activity and the consequent reduction in employment. The pandemic adds to the negative performance that both the economy and the employment rate had been showing in the country. In January 2020, before the first COVID case, ILO had already estimated an increase in the unemployment rate in the country in 2020 and 2021. On the other hand, economic activity fell in Mexico -0.1 in 2019, which shows that Mexico was experiencing a recession before the pandemic onset.
