What is left to man when we deprive him of the apparent security? What does man become when life circumstances throw him out of balance? When life gives way to death to whom can we cry for help? The current situation caused by the virus can be compared to the feeling of helplessness we have when we are flying in a plane: strong turbulence begins and there is nothing you can do.
