There have been ways outlined for living in isolation; ways to keep busy and stay active. Due to man’s survival, economic hardship, family and various cultures or ways of life, the word isolation is seen as a canker yet it has become necessary to comply due to health emergencies, with its shutdowns and pleas to keep our distance from others to curb the spread of this disease. In contemporary Africa where the nuclear family is gradually isolated from extended family, relationships are obligatory, based on notions of family responsibility and duty, and as a result, may entail issues of emotional ambivalence. Finally, given specific affinities and personal similarities found in friend relationships, friends provide different forms of support and interactions allowing us to use social media to keep our closeness together in isolation. The work seeks to explore the word Isolation together particularly, in personal, nuclear family, and social distancing in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic and measures.
