Faced with the current context marked by the sudden appearance of the Coronavirus pandemic (nCoV2) in the world in general and in Cameroon in particular, the need for a readjustment in lifestyle has been imposed on people. The health crisis has forced governments around the world to take measures to readjust people's behavior, in order to allow them to escape the risk of collapse on all aspects. The article aims to understand the meaning that people give to their subjective lived experience in such an anxious context marked by the health crisis due to the corona virus. Through the qualitative clinical method, the comprehensive approach and the phenomenological interpretative analysis, nine interviews were conducted with the nine participants residing in the city of Yaoundé in Cameroon and exercising in different professions. The results show that the participants live an experience marked by a strong felt anxiety, painful emotions, fear, anger, a feeling of weakness and insecurity and stress. Faced with these painful experiences, the participants implemented a set of cognitive and behavioral efforts which need to be reinforced by psychological care.
