If you keep testing you will keep adding new cases

Not necessarily. If no one had COVID then each test you did would no more cases. On the other hand, if every one had it, every test would be a new case
You got that otherwise you are just gonna have to hold onto your seat and trust me on this.
So what is important is the positivity rate, this is the number of positive test divided by the total tests done in any statistically significant period. Its going to be a number between 0.000 and 1.000 which corresponds to "nobody has it" to "everyone has it" like the case above.
Now this next bit is realy gonna blow your sox off
If the positivity rate is increasing it generally means that more people are getting the disease. I say generally because more sick people could be showing up on purpose as part of some yet to defined conspiracy.

This completes your first home school lesson in Math and Critical Thinking. Homework for today is to follow up on this hypothesis above with example from your own state.

1) Go to the John Hopkins COVID site and find your state in the picture.
The states are colored Red Yellow and Green. Which do you think is good and bad?
2) Find how many hospital beds are available in your state.
Is the trend going up or down, Is this bad or good?
3) Find out who your governor is and read what he has said recently
Does his words about trends match what you have discovered about trends yourself?
If they are different, why do you think this is so?
