In addition, he said, this coverage will apply from April 1, the day the last phase of this contingency was announced.
“One of the lessons we get from situations like the current pandemic is the importance of social solidarity to overcome social problems as a whole society,” he said.
From the National Palace, Sofía Belmar Berumen, president of AMIS, maintained that, with this action, the 87 companies that make up the insurance sector in Mexico, seek to recognize the health sector personnel who protect Mexican families during the pandemic.
“In this initiative, 1.6 million workers in the health sector will be included, from doctors to residents, nurses, nursing interns, nursing assistants, professional and technical personnel, stretcher bearers, janitors and laborers.
The compensation will be 50 thousand pesos and the beneficiaries will be, in the first instance, the spouse; if there is no husband or wife, it will be the children and if there are none, it will be the parents.
The validity of said life insurance will be for medical personnel who have died from April 1 to August 31.
