COVID-19 Causing PTSD in Doctors and Nurses | The Latest with Lee



Over the past several months, the COVID-19 epidemic has dominated daily life, with wide-ranging impacts on the economy and public health. However, perhaps no one subset of the population has experienced the full brunt of the outbreak more acutely than the healthcare workers fighting to keep it at bay. Working long hours with oft-insufficient PPE (and in many cases isolated from loved ones), they must confront human suffering & death in a way that few civilians ever will, and the mental toll can be exorbitant.

On this premiere episode of The Latest with Lee, VICE’s Lee Adams explores the coronavirus pandemic’s mental health consequences on the healthcare workers tasked with combating it. By talking with mental health experts as well as doctors & nurses from the nation’s COVID-19 hotspots, Lee will investigate the parallels between the post-traumatic stress injuries that both active-duty soldiers & frontline healthcare workers must live with.
