April 9: Fauci Estimates Final US Death Toll At 60,000
April 29: Number Of US Deaths Now At 60,495

ABC News, April 9, 2020:
[T]he nation's top health expert said Thursday that he thinks the U.S. death toll from COVID-19 could be far less than the original White House projection of up to 240,000 lives ...

[Dr. Anthony] Fauci confirmed on Thursday morning that social distancing and behavior changes are "starting to have a real effect" and that the virus death toll may look "more like 60,000 than the 100,000 to 200,000" initially predicted.
The US passed 60,000 deaths less than three weeks after Fauci made those comments.

As I type this, deaths are at 60,495.
