Does Covid-19 disprove God?

Briefly, why would a loving god inflict such a virus on its creation? It isn’t the first time such a virus has waged war against humankind, The bubonic plague (the ‘black death’, the plague, la peste) is still active today and in Europe, for over two centuries it killed approximately 30,000,000 people.

I find it incomprehensible that a loving god would unleash such viruses on its flock, what is this god doing? Is it conducting experiments on human populations? The virus doesn’t give a damn about who it infects, or where, it isn’t conscious, it just exists as a┬ámassively destructive and unguided killer. Unguided by a god.

It makes no sense for a god to treat its creation in this way, it isn’t a question of ‘god moves in mysterious ways’, unless your opt out, from seeing that which is staring you in the face. That is supernatural belief, we have zero evidence for the supernatural. God’s creation is looking more unproven than ever at the moment as Covid-19 wreaks havoc amongst humankind; belief in a creator god is increasingly untenable.
