For critics of the lockdowns, there is a study done by Drexel University showing an estimated 6,202 lives were saved in Philadelphia alone and more than 57,000 avoided hospitalization.

The study was conducted specific to 30 cities around the U.S., with a remarkable 23,000 fewer deaths in the city of Baltimore, Maryland.

"All of the many sacrifices they're making by staying home are not in vain, that it actually has this impact that affects all of us," professor and study's author Amy Carroll-Scott, Ph.D., told ABC-6 in Philadelphia.

"It's important for policymakers to see that these stay-at-home orders, and social distancing measures are really important, and that if we lift them too soon, we're likely to see another spike, and that we need to be monitoring those new cases, and hospitalizations and lives saved as we inch closer to re-opening."

Among the other cities largely saved from masses of deaths were New York City (25,000) and Dallas (10,000), according to the report.
