27. The 7 day rate is not the daily rate. It is a moviing average of the last 7 days.


It hit a peak of 69,150 on July 25, which is below the single-day peak of daily new cases of 78,446 on July 24.

The 7 day average is now down to 58,924 yesterday Aug 5 and has declined every day since July 25.

The 7 day average is used to smooth out weekly variations because Sundays and Mondays tend to report lower numbers due to less work being done on weekends. That's the Aug 2 and 3 values you mention.
