It's simpler than that. It's because the rags they read are espousing that rubbish about brexit and covid19. Telegraph, Times, DM, Sun are toeing the "poverty has killed more people than this virus will" line because the rich old dudes who wanted out of the EU also want their incomes and businesses kept alive, why should they lose money just because the plebs are getting sick and dieing? So the rags are telling you to keep working and spending your money. Blitz spirit tally HO, only the weak will get sick.
