The point has already been made that most people don't infect anyone, and the evidence is very strong that 90% of cases are so mild, or asymptomatic, that they're not found until serology testing takes place.
I'd say we continue to be lucky. If one of the people going out of quarantine untested had been a super-spreader we'd be headed back to level 3 about now.
Very lucky, I think we got away with it.
