Please correct me if it’s wrong. Thanks.

No, the sentence is not a question. "How" here means "the way or manner in which" (entry two at this link).

So the sentence means "The way in which lockdowns ease will affect the scale of economic damage."


"How lockdowns ease" means "the manner in which lockdowns ease"

So it's saying that this manner will be a factor influencing the economic damage.
