This is a two axis chart. The solid green line provides a running tally of the total number of tests for Los Angeles County. The light green columns show the number of new tests each day using the left vertical axis scale. The dotted green line is a seven day moving average trend line for these daily new test numbers.
The solid orange line charts the cumulative number of confirmed cases for Los Angeles County. The orange columns indicate the daily number of new confirmed cases, again using the left vertical axis scale. The dotted orange line is a seven day moving average trend line for these daily new confirmed cases.
The data for cumulative tests and confirmed cases both use the right vertical axis for scale.
Charts showing both test counts and rates per 100,000 people are available for the beach cities in South Bay Los Angeles.

While testing has been significantly increasing (finally), the number of confirmed cases haven’t been proportionately increasing in direct correspondence. This could be interpreted as a sign for optimism…
