'Where is the data': Anand Sharma on Health Minister's claim that lockdown prevented 78,000 deaths

On 3rd day of Monsoon session of Parliament, Congress MP Anand Sharma in Rajya Sabha sought for "scientific data" of Union Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan's claim that 'lockdown prevented approximately 14 lakh to 29 lakh cases and 37,000 to 78,000 deaths amid COVID-19 pandemic'.

In the session, Sharma said, "Yesterday, the Health Minister said that this decision (lockdown) prevented approximately 14 to 29 lakh COVID-19 cases and 37,000-78,000 deaths.

The house must be informed what is the scientific basis on which we have reached this conclusion?"
