Natural Remedy

Covid19, now a pandemic, has taken over half amillion lives, worldwide. There is every indication that the virus will be with forever in the same way that flu can never be eradicated, popping up from time to time in different parts of the world, respecting no cultures or nationalities.
Is it time to recognise that the introduction of the the virus is in fact Nature's way of maintaining a balance in the biosphere, correcting the problem of overpopulation, beyond that which the planet cannot sustain. Now exceeding seven billion, the earth's population has already seen the ocean's larder plundered almost to extinction and evermore people fighting for the diminishing fertile land. Forests, essential for the planet's wellbeing are being felled for palm oil as conglomerates exploit every chance to keep the globe fed.
With no obvious way to stop people procreating, Governments fail to act, afraid of contravening human right legislation, Nature has to take a hand. It will be brutal, taking the young and old alike; the well and infirm of all religions and none.
Science will come up with ways to alleviate the suffering and control the spread of one strain only for another to spring up. Covid20 is just round the corner and Covid21 after that until the population of the planet can be sustained by natural resources.
Nature has another brutal solution but one less palatable, perhaps. War. It is not uninevitable as the major powers, the US, China and Russia vie for global domination. This confrontation, seemingly man made, is in effect a manifestation of Nature's survival of the fittest strategy. When people get down of their knees to pray, they shouldn't be entreating their non-existing gods for help but beseeching mother Nature for guidance.
