ABSTRACT. The purpose of this study was to empirically examine gender-based differences of contagious negative emotions, notable psychological distress, and mental health burden during the COVID-19 outbreak. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from APA, Chapman University, Ginger, GMU/CCCC, HHD, ONS, Pew Research Center, Rek et al. (2020), Statista, the University of Melbourne, and YPCCC, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding prevalence of stress, anxiety, and depression during the COVID-19 pandemic. The structural equation modeling technique was used to test the research model.
