You may be correct. Statistics are difficult to interpret sometimes. You make an interesting point about the size of the country but that could be irrelevant if the bulk of the population live in the towns/cities?

Their strategy may be working exactly how they intend - Get it over and done with, thinking they will have a similar amount of deaths either way Ė but with a less affected economy.
