Algotrading during market crashes

Hello everyone

In case of black swan events where the market dropped a lot. (Such as with corona or 2007-2008 financial crash). Do you still try to algotrade after the market has gone down?

My intuition right now that it would most likely be better to just skip algotrading until the market has recovered somewhat. Given that if the global market drops lets say 40-50%, the whole market is most likely going to recover for all stocks. And my intuition is that trying to buy and sell specific stocks frequently is probably not as fruitful than just being in the market with my capital.

So I guess, how did you approach this corona market crash or how will you approach future crashes/heavy drawdowns in the global market.
