It depends on your uni or lecturer. Late is late, so if I have to make a guess, I think you will be punished in some way.
In our uni the policy says, 10% deduction will be made if the assignments are uploaded within 7 days after the deadline, but if the result is 40%, deductions cannot be made. (+You'll only get 1% if you hand it in when the 7 days passed)
So it isn't that harsh as yours. Are you sure you haven't misunderstand the policy?

Anyway, I would suggest you to contact your course tutor and ask if you could apply for any extension due to coronavirus. We recieved an extra week for our deadlines, as our uni suspended the teaching for a few days before actually closing down and moving to distance learning. Have a try.

Do you mean they don't count weekends as working days? Your post isn't clear.

I'd double check this. I can't believe that you would face no penalty for handing work in up to two days late: i.e you could hand it in on Sunday night and this would still be within the 'working days' rule.
