This has already been covered! It's all about trade-offs, but for starters, the economic recession we're about to see thanks to the Coronavirus is about 10 times worse (probably more) than the WORST no-deal economic forecast for a no-deal Brexit. And there was nothing to prove that this would have even happened - that's the problem with models be it Climate or Economic, one can always input the data to get the result one wants to see.

At present, people see the economic price as a worthwhile trade-off to saving people's lives. Brexiteer's see national sovereignty and being outside a bureaucratic, expansionist behemoth as worthwhile trade-off to the risk of slower economic growth.
The poor economic forecast for Brexit is not based on models but on the fact that there are no large free trade deals with other countries ready to go even after almost 4 years.
Remember "Liam Fox promises to sign 40 free trade deals the 'second after midnight ' on the day of Brexit"; another lie.
