Abstract

This article estimates the potential years of life lost (PYLL) owing to deaths from coronavirus
disease (COVID-19) in Mexico year and a half since the onset of the pandemic. Using
data from the General Directorate of Epidemiology in Mexico’s Secretariat of Health,
it has been estimated that between 18 March 2020 and 17 August 2021, there were
3,123,252 cases positive for SARS-CoV-2 infection, 249,525 deaths, and 4,989,194 years
of life lost, with men accounting for 61.1% of those years. The average PYLL per death
is approximately 20 years and in at least 90% of the States, more than half of PYLL
corresponded to persons under 60 years of age. All the estimates show significant
differences among the States.
