“Up until now, the company can neither confirm nor rule out if the cause of his death is related to COVID-19 because we have not been informed,” the automaker stated.
After being notified on March 26 that the person was hospitalized, the company sent some workers home that day, according to the statement.
The worker, identified as Angel Ignacio M., died Friday. Some of his “loved ones” have also been hospitalized due to respiratory complications, the automaker added.
About 2,785 people in Mexico have been confirmed as being infected with the coronavirus. The virus has killed 141 people in the country.
