No, because the coronavirus is incredibly inefficient at actually killing people.

With a vaccine we'd probably go back to where we were (and worse) pre-COVID.

A hypothetical zombie virus, or Ebola going airborne, would be much better at this.

No. Governments chose lockdown, not nature. Some countries don't even have actual lockdowns happening and never did.

Nope. As others said damn inefficient.
Plus, doesnt that rather require 'mother nature' to know how society works and how we'd respond? This being a fairly novel response and all.

If you assume ”mother nature” is a god as the Romans did then it all becomes a lot easier.

Comrade Napp, please use woke language and refer to them as ”plus-size sexually promiscuous goddesses”.

It would certainly help in dodging this overly sensitive swear filter.. last time i checked the word they've banned technically refers to an industrial by-product :lol:

No, because its mostly killing poor people. Those contributing to the green house effect and global warming, the big tycoons, those running governments and polluting the atmosphere have largely been unaffected neither have their carbon/pollution producing systems and they will be back to polluting the atmosphere as soon as the lock down is over.
