Governments don't normally go Bankrupt , they have the Power to raise additional TAXES.

 BUT , can you not understand who it is that " gains Financially " from COVID -19  ???

 HINT ; who keeps Governments in POWER   ;)

The more people who lose their jobs, the less tax raising revenue the Government has. The way it works in the UK, someone unemployed pays no personal income tax, no national insurance contributions, has less disposable income to spend and therefore spends less on vat. In fact it's a double whammy as they then have to pay people 'benefits'. It may not be like that in the US, but I don't know about the US. No one 'gains financially', from Covid 19 apart from undertakers, that is.
It's the people who keep Governments in power, they either vote them in, or vote them out.
Boris has a majority of 80 seats and the Labour Party look like a bunch of Prats. So until the 'people' remove Boris, he's there to stay.  :)

Not guilty because the victim was asking for it? Or not guilty because the victim made the whole thing up?
