60k deaths is the low end estimate with the mitigation measures.
With out them the death toll would have been much much higher.

So quantify our efforts for me. Lombardy region isn’t the US and has a number of different variables in different regions of the world that would be at play in the spread of a disease. That doesn’t prove much about quantifying the American response. Simple question. How many lives were saved by our efforts?
What number of projected deaths is the line that justifies our response vs no response? No shutting down the economy and quarantine from 60,000 flu deaths in 2018. You aren’t advocating that we had the wrong response then, so at what number is it correct? 100,000? 60,001?

My favorite mitigation method is the curfew, everyone knows Covid is afraid of the dark.
