ABSTRACT. The aim of this paper is to synthesize and analyze existing evidence on depressive symptoms, perceived risk of infection, and emotional fatigue among COVID-19 frontline medical personnel. Using and replicating data from ACHA, CHCF, Harvard Medical School, HMN, McKinsey, MHA, Pew Research Center, Rek et al. (2020), Statista, TKW Research, UNC School of Medicine, and UPMC, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the mental health and emotional resilience of frontline healthcare workers treating COVID-19 patients. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.
