ABSTRACT. Empirical evidence on psychological trauma symptoms and mental conditions of medical staff during the COVID-19 pandemic has been scarcely documented in the literature. Using and replicating data from BMA, CHCF, Ginger, IASC, McKinsey, MedPage Today, Nursing Times, and Potloc, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding healthcare workers reporting experiencing feeling anxious or depressed in past week, stressors frontline workers may experience during the COVID-19 outbreak, and the virtual delivery of mental healthcare to COVID-19 frontline medical staff. Data were analyzed using structural equation modeling.
