We are facing an uncertain and tense scenario due to the Covid-19 pandemic, which has already affected thousands of families in Peru and caused significant economic losses. Clearly, dealing with a disease about which little is known and which generates harmful health effects in many cases, has forced the Peruvian government to decree a state of national emergency with strict quarantine since mid-March, which has been relaxed in the following months. With this severe measure, the government's strategy aimed at stopping the spread of the disease, isolating those infected to halt the spread and gaining valuable time for our poor health system to be prepared and better able to deal with the disease by having the necessary materials and health personnel available for this purpose. As we all know, the precariousness and abandonment of the Peruvian health system has a long history, so it was fundamental to improve the existing hospitals with personnel and equipment, as well as to set up other campaign hospitals to face the pandemic in better conditions. Therefore, according to the Peruvian Government, time, prevention and willingness of citizens were necessary in order to put all health centers in a position to receive patients. It is in this hard and painful situation, and naturally, that the mining sector interested in the issue decided to approach the Executive to offer its moral, human, economic and logistical support. In this way, the mining union took very seriously its role as a key actor in the national effort to work for the common good, carrying out key social work in the context of the pandemic.
