Is 100,000 to 200,000 deaths called “containing” the virus?

There haven't BEEN 100,000 to 200,000 deaths from coronavirus any where in the world.
Globally, to date there have been 1,511,104 suspected cases of coronavirus; 328,661 have recovered; 88,338 have died. The deaths were from complications that are often attributed to coronavirus, but might not, in fact, have been the virus.

Considering the fact that we could have 50 million deaths. I wouldn't flap my gums too much! we've all known that a virus was coming we made movies about the viruses and we played with them and laughed about them on the television but we didn't do anything and now the virus is here and nobody prepared for it who's to blame for that accept me and you

Yes it is. To the extent we know. Our population is 333,000,000.

Annual number of deaths in the US for leading causes of death (2017):
Heart disease: 647,457
Accidents (unintentional injuries): 169,936
Chronic lower respiratory diseases: 160,201
Stroke (cerebrovascular diseases): 146,383
Alzheimer’s disease: 121,404
Influenza and Pneumonia: 55,672
Nephritis, nephrotic syndrome and nephrosis: 50,633
Intentional self-harm (suicide): 47,173
So you decide. It is certainly better than the estimated 2.2 million that were projected to die with no containment.

Is that for the whole world or a particular country?
Is that per day? per month? per year? in total?
Under 'normal' (non-CoViD-19) conditions, the world's total death rate is about 56 million per year.

A billion deaths could have occurred, and someone could say that the virus is contained. That is because the definition of containment means that the virus will be stopped before it kills "many" more. In other words, "contained" means that the situation is under control, and it doesn't matter how many have already died from it. Even if we are expecting 200,000 more deaths, if the end is in sight it means that the plague is contained. An uncontained virus keeps on killing, without end, until it is contained.

No, it's called "mitigating" the virus when the alternative is more than 2 million deaths. That's why the word "mitigating" is used by official sources to refer to the what the US is doing, not "containing." Why aren't we "containing" it? Because it's in too many places and so is beyond containment.
