ABSTRACT. This paper analyzes the outcomes of an exploratory review of the current research on the psychological ill-health of frontline medical staff working with COVID-19 patients. The data used for this study was obtained and replicated from previous research conducted by BMA, IPPR, Pew Research Center, Prescott et al. (2020), MedPage Today, TKW Research, and YouGov. I performed analyses and made estimates regarding concerns healthcare workers have about COVID-19, views on whether the U.S. government is doing enough to protect and test healthcare workers, and which COVID-19 patients doctors should prioritize giving ventilators to in the case of shortages. Data collected from 700 respondents are tested against the research model by using structural equation modeling.
