Are we being replaced by automation...

Have the same feeling.
These dark times just happen to coincide with the awakening of AI... whatever that is. Somehow I don't think robots dream of electronic sheep.
Plans like this have a habit of failing due to insanity.
We have unlimited potential.

The robots are the slaves though. Not the people.

If you suggesting Coronavirus scare was done for automation to take our place - not sure about that one..
But not to worry, its coming.
It's most certainly what I'm suggesting.

We probably will be, not fully because there are a lot of things automation can't do now (or in the near future) that humans will still be needed for. But I do suspect that when covid19 runs it's course there will be a push for robot tech.
Many states have been pushing this STEM initiative for close to 10 years with a lot of young people focusing on robotics. I'm sure some of this is to help produce a large group of people that will become robotic engineers to make new types of automation.
It's not necessarily a bad thing but we just need to be aware of just how much automation we want in our lives
