Psychological symptoms among frontline healthcare workers during COVID-19 outbreak in Wuhan

03/04/20

"To our knowledge, this study is among the first to report the psychological symptoms of Chinese frontline HCWs in Wuhan during the COVID-19 pandemic. Consistent with prior evidence [[5], [6], [7]], our results suggest frontline HCWs in Wuhan during the peak of the outbreak were under moderate to severe stress and many reported elevated anxiety and depression. Wuhan HCWs (vs. outreach), demonstrated greater vulnerability for stress and depression."
