A lockdown is in the original sense of the word a curfew or a cordon or sealing of buildings and areas. In the event of a rampage or a terrorist attack, perpetrators are to be encircled and slowed down or possible victims protected. So you restrict certain freedoms, prohibit certain actions and take special measures that can be extreme or have an effect. This is usually a period of hours or days. Barriers, barriers and barricades as well as police and counter-terrorism forces can provide support.
History and background
For a long time, lockdown was known primarily in the USA, both as a term and as a phenomenon. After the outbreak of COVID-19 in late 2019 and the global spread of the disease in early 2020, the media used the term with a view to closing (semi) public and private (including private sector) facilities, cordoning off areas and entire countries as well the stalemate in public life that lasted for weeks and months. It became popular e.g. in South Africa, the Philippines and Indonesia, as well as in Switzerland and Germany. With this meaning, one can also speak of a shutdown.
Criticism and Outlook
In the case of the pandemic mentioned, the term seems to have a certain attitude towards life in those affected, on the one hand referring to extreme situations that had to be faced up to now, and on the other hand addressing being locked in and including a downward trend and tendency to dissolve. Business ethics can ask how much a lockdown or shutdown will damage the economy or help companies, their employees and customers. Media ethics can examine what the terminology does to readers, listeners and viewers and whether it is used appropriately.
