ABSTRACT. The purpose of this study was to empirically examine prolonged stress, emotional anxiety, and depressive symptoms in frontline respiratory and intensive care physicians and nurses as a result of COVID-19. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from ACEP, Benenden Health, GMU/CCCC, IPPR, MHA, Morning Consult, NNU, NurseFly, Nursing Times, ONS, Pew Research Center, PHQ-9, Rek et al. (2020), YouGov, and YPCCC, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding the psychological and emotional health of frontline healthcare workers. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.
