There is nothing natural to politics playing a role in the spread of Covid-19.That report does not surprise me at all. This is a micro-droplet spread virus. The lockdowns simply buy some time to develop therapeutics and/or shots to prevent infection/reduce symptoms of an infection. This virus is going to spread naturally, unless the world is willing to go hermit (no essential services) for a month or so.
Intentionally infecting a population is a man made concept.
Going 'hermit' was a result ( in the US ) of Trump intentionally allowing the virus to over run medical facilities to the point extreme measures were enacted.
Even then, because Covid-19 became Trump's political football, too many people that were either unconcerned, ignorant, or followers of Trumpism........common sense was too often denied and the virus infection was not contained and rebounded with the potential of a more serious fall/winter second wave.
The virus hasn't been spreading naturally and will likely continue until an efficient vaccine is developed, as long as common sense is denied, and wearing masks and social distancing is a political issue.
