The great contagious capacity, the high pathogenic level of Sars-Cov-2 and the subsequent risk represented by physical contact between people, motivated measures such as social distancing and the closure of institutions, including university ones. In this way, many teachers who taught their classes in person, were faced with the need to educate from virtuality. However, a large proportion of these professionals did not have the technical preparation to approach this methodology, which includes the planning, preparation and execution of various demanding materials and activities that are added to the hours of synchronous virtual work, resulting in long hours. According to previous research, this has caused emotional exhaustion and physical exhaustion of the teacher. The present research proposed as an objective to analyze the levels of Burnout syndrome in university professors in Latin America, seeking to understand if these values are due only to the perception of these professionals or if, on the contrary, they are related to the risks and consequences of the covid-19 disease.
