COVID 19 has resulted in unprecedented times for the world. It has impacted all the individuals in one or the other way. However, the most affected have been the healthcare professionals across the globe. This study collected data from 112 individuals who are working on COVID 19 vaccine development in healthcare sector in India, to understand the relationship between perceived stress from coronavirus and burnout with the mediating role of resilience by developing a path model. The study has also attempted to examine the significant difference in stress, resilience and burnout based on COVID 19 infection subgroups. The results of the study revealed a significant difference in resilience of those who have already been infected against those who have not been infected yet. Further, the analysis reported a positive relationship between perceived stress and burnout with a significant mediating effect of resilience among the healthcare professionals during the time of pandemic.
