September 15 COVID-19 Test ResultsThe second graph shows the 7 day average of positive tests reported.

Note that there were very few tests available in March and April, and many cases were missed (the percent positive was very high - see first graph). By June, the percent positive had dropped below 5%.

If people stay vigilant, the number of cases might drop to the June low by the end of September - although this seems unlikely now (that would still be a large number of new cases, but progress).
