ABSTRACT. Despite the relevance of illness fears, psychological distress, and behavioral responses to COVID-19 among primary care providers, only limited research has been conducted on this topic. Using and replicating data from Active Minds, Bain & Company, BMA, CMA, College Pulse, Course Hero, Gallup, Harvard Medical School, LAC/DMH, NASPA, Nursing Times, ONS, Pew Research Center, PHQ-9, Statista, and UNC School of Medicine, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding levels of stress and anxiety in healthcare providers. The results of a study based on data collected from 3,800 respondents provide support for my research model. Using the structural equation modeling, I gathered and analyzed data through a self-administrated questionnaire.
