Even without Covid-19, man cages himself in his thoughts and ego. He is never free and jubilant. Presently Covid-19 is a pretext only. Locking up mentally is the nature of the man. Physical lockdown is nothing compared to mental lockdown. Even in physical lockdown, the inconvenient and disturbing mental lockdown in thoughts never sets man free. After lifting physical lockdown, the body moves, but the mental lockdown continues unfortunately.
Lockdown seems to be a must for humans with or without Covid-19 like emergencies or disasters.
Setting free from thoughts and ego calms the mind; and the physical lockdown is just a passing by event.
