Officials said previously that the outbreak had peaked and they had seen a reduction in the rate of its growth.
To translate, reduction in rate of growth. If you have 10 new cases a day and it goes to 9 new cases a day, that is a reduction in the rate of growth. You are still getting new cases, just not as many new cases.
