You have anything to back that up? Countries that are doing best economically are those that reacted swiftly with resolute government action. You see this in numerous Asian countries which pulled through this well. In Nordic countries Sweden is starting to be hurt most badly due to a lack of a proper lockdown. 22x as many are now dead as in Norway, yet our economy seems to recover better as we are opening up a lot more than Sweden. The lockdown paid off. It gave few cases which are easy to track and makes it easier to open up and live normal. Germany is another country doing well due to an early lockdown unlike the UK which delayed it too much.
