I think it is just a matter of time before every person on the entire planet becomes infected.
Every person on the planet has the flu virus in their bodies and this won't be any different.
Given the total numbers, worldwide, of people who are already infected and the fact that there is no vaccine, I believe thd government (all governments) knows everyone will eventually get infected at some point and they are preparing for the worse in case of societal breakdown.
If people slowly get infected and recover after a week or two (similar to the common flu), they will accept it easier than everyone getting infectdd at the same time and panicking.
Thanks In Advance
