Abstract

The article examines the personal reactions of humanity to the pandemic of the coronavirus disease COVID-19 and related quarantine measures in the spring of 2020 at the level of essential psychological transformations. It is shown that such a total crisis situation plunged many people into the existential landscape of life-creation, filled, in particular, with existential fears, the specifics of which should be considered in the socio-psychological accompaniment of the individual.

Described and given examples of non-constructive and conditionally constructive poles and possible consequences of individual-personal experiences of the four existential fears of the personality actualized by these given.
