This research aimed at elaborating on the existential psychological situation of human beings during a pandemic. This study employed a qualitative philosophical approach through literature study and observational-field study. The results of this study reveal that existential isolation is present in individuals due to fear and anxiety of exposure to the COVID 19 pandemic. The existential isolation that occurred is precisely the effort of individuals to go beyond the existential isolation in the form of ethics of care for the others.
