This state of burnout implies a person has reached their capacity to cope and is experiencing various mental, emotional, or physical symptoms because of the constant exposure to pandemic stressors, including social distancing, isolation from family and friends, fears of contracting Covid-19, grief, financial stress, and more according to psychologists.

Dr Rhonda Sealy-Thomas says health officials have not been immune from these feelings either.
