Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic, sometimes referred to as the coronavirus pandemic, is an ongoing worldwide illness outbreak brought on by the coronavirus 2 that causes severe acute respiratory syndrome (SARS-CoV-2). The outbreak's impact on the world's health, economy, and people's lives was unparalleled. Frontline employees are under extreme and unprecedented pressure from reporting to work during this epidemic, endangering their physical, emotional, and social well-being. Long-term exposure to severe stress can have a number of negative effects on frontline employees' emotional and mental health. This essay's goal is to examine the difficulties experienced by front-line personnel (doctors, nurses, and community health workers) during COVID 19 in several international locations. Only peer-reviewed articles about the difficulties experienced by front-line personnel during the COVID 19 outbreak were examined in the literature study. This study examines the psycho-social wellbeing and health of front-line medical personnel throughout the epidemic. Employers and organisations must understand the difficulties this essential workforce faces during pandemics and provide the right kind of assistance.
