Again it’s just a simple way of looking at it but ScoMo is claiming Australia is testing to a much higher number per capita than the uk and an insane number higher than the US and the stats seem to back it up, if you look at South Korea where they are known to test test test this is reflected also  

The first recorded case in Australia was on the 25th jan and the uk the 31st, both from abroad rather than domestically spread. 

The first case is irrelevant.  Two weeks ago the UK was showing about 1500 cases while Australia was 300.  Even if the infection figures were reliable you really need to look at death rates alongside the infection rate numbers of 2 weeks ago particularly when the upward curves on the graphs are so pronounced.

The 0.3% death rate in Australia is a statistical anomaly caused as much by the lag in the spread on infection here as much, if not more, than the relative testing.

Sadly the number of deaths here is set to rise sharply in the coming weeks.

I’m not disputing that at all.
 

But if you’re testing more the numbers are more accurate. The original claim was that the numbers were around the same given the differences in population, that doesn’t appear to be the case. 
The more testing you do reduces the speed of infection that’s the entire point. Once someone is confirmed people around them are given notice locked down and the spread is slowed. That’s why Korea has a huge number of cases but very little deaths. 
Testing is as important as social distancing if not more so.

We are in a similar situations, partners parents are over from the UK and no more international flights from ADL.. they are happy to stay, but their visa expires end of May... if they overstay their visa could it impact upon our spouse visa application?

No. But they should look at applying for another visa(maybe the 600) so they don't become unlawful
