ABSTRACT. I develop a conceptual framework based on a systematic and comprehensive literature review on COVID-19-related psychological distress, acute depression, and post-traumatic stress disorder in frontline respiratory and intensive care physicians and nurses. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from ACHA, BMA, CDC, GWI, Harvard Medical School, HMN, IPPR, KFF, Pew Research Center, Rek et al. (2020), Statista, UNC School of Medicine, and YouGov, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding mental health issues of COVID-19 primary care providers. The data for this research were gathered via an online survey questionnaire and were analyzed through structural equation modeling on a sample of 3,200 respondents.
