What is a lockdown?
Lockdowns. The name basically says it all! Everything just goes into lockdown during lockdown! But seriously everything just closes including your social life! Lockdowns usually happen for a reason, like in 2020 almost the whole world had a lockdown by April, because of a virus called COVID-19, but viruses aren’t the only reason we might have lockdowns, it could be because maybe a murderer has gotten out or something and they can’t find them, or some other reason like that.
Who decides on a lockdown?
It is usually the highest occupant in that country. Could be a prime minister, a president, just the highest occupant! But they usually get advice from others like some ministers and they even listen to people all over the world and just locals in that country! Then they listen and take in all the advice to help them decide on what to do.
What usually changes during a lockdown?
Usually during a lockdown shops close down, like bakeries, restaurants, takeaways, clothing stores, everything! But some stores open like supermarkets and pharmacies because they are essential shops and businesses, so lucky for their workers! You’re also usually not allowed to drive around unless you’re going to the shop, just to try to keep people home more often, and sometimes you’re not even allowed to go for walks!
How long does a lockdown last?
It depends on how long the highest occupant decides, could be weeks or months, just depends on what the situation is and how long they decide! But it doesn’t usually last over a year.. USUALLY, who knows it could soon! Everyone could have a lockdown at any time for whatever reason.
