Statistics, statistics! They have to be taken in context. The population of the Island swells in the tourist season, especially during the school summer holidays. I wonder how many times higher our population is now than in the winter months?

Those counted in the ‘tested & confirmed’ cases referred to in the article are I believe, permanent residents only, so cases as % of population *should* remain similar
