The COVID-19 pandemic has caused problems in the health and social fields, seriously affecting the perception of health personnel by the general population. A systematic review of scientific articles has been carried out in databases such as Pubmed, Scielo, Latindex and Google Scholar, and in Google, since the first case of COVID-19 reported in Mexico on February 28 2020 through April 2021. During the study period, two articles were found in the Pubmed, one article was published in each of the other databases, and eight more through Google. In Mexico, the State of Jalisco is the federal entity with the highest number of reported attacks on health care personnel relative to its population.
