Breaking all ties with our social connections can take us down a lonely path. This could increase the risks of mental diseases such as depression and other critical physical ailments.
Hence, many people in lockdown are now experiencing what is clinically referred to as “cognitive dissonance”. This usually happens in circumstances when people experience mental discomfort for having conflicting thoughts and feelings. The feeling of isolation is daunting and it is becoming difficult to be “locked down”. It is human for a person to attempt to lessen the discord for maintaining their mental comfort.

People are making efforts to survive with psychological dissonance in various ways. Many countries are in denial and claim that they are virus-free. Some countries, like the USA are agitated and are holding protests against the same.
In the new world, most people have survived by adapting to the new customs of living, a lot supported by contemporary technological advancement. An enormous array of virtual social happenings are now taking place like board games, yoga sessions, collaborative creative activities, and more.
