No - but there is a difference between disruption and shutting down vast swathes of the economy. If this goes on for any length of time then when we finally re-open the economy again many companies will have simply ceased to exist and that production will be lost.

For example in WW2 we had massive disruption but the economy was going flat out to produce.
