Coronavirus: Health care workers face stress that's 'in many ways equal' to combat

"Facing a lack of PPE, heavy media coverage, no clear way of how to treat patients, and a heavy workload, these front line workers “are at risk of developing psychological distress and other mental health symptoms,” according to a recent study by JAMA.
The study found that these workers were more prone to developing depression, anxiety, insomnia, and other signs of distress.
According to a paper from moral injury experts Rita Brock and HC Palmer, fighting coronavirus is “strikingly similar” to medicine on the battlefield."
