The Tuesday Covid update stated "The number of people testing positive per 100,000 people jumped to 74.9 percent Sunday, according to the Harvard Global health Institute..." That sounds like 3/4 of the entire population has tested positive. Is that statement accurate, or am I not understanding the meaning correctly?

The story has now been updated to reflect that the correct statement is that 74.9 people out of 100,000 are testing positive for the virus.
