Only few studies have shown impact of SARS-COV-2 among those HCWs who are working in Non SARS-COV-2 areas distinctively. Thus, the degree up-to what extent burn out syndrome have impacted on lives of HCWs working in SARS-COV-2 areas and Non SARS-COV-2 areas independently, is compared in this survey. Response rate was 80%. The prevalence of personal, work related, client related burnout among HCWs working in SARS COV-2 area was high as compared with HCWs working in Non SARS COV-2 area respectively (p < 0.01). There was no statistically significant association found between gender, marital status, years in practice and age as (p > 0.05).
