With COVID-19, Mexico experienced the highest excess mortality in the OECD and significant disruptions to other care. Health at a Glance 2021 provides the latest comparable data and trends on the performance of health systems in OECD countries and key emerging economies.

Employment in Mexico is projected to decline only marginally in 2020 and return to pre-crisis levels by the second quarter of 2021. Yet, while still small compared to other OECD countries, the forecasted increase in unemployment rate is significant and above the levels of the 2009 global financial crisis. Without a second wave, the Mexican unemployment rate is projected to peak at 7.2% in Q2 2020, falling back to 5.9% at the end of 2021
