Americans are a lot less rugged than they used to be. They've gone soft & sensitive. Take for example the USS Roosevelt. COVID-19 got them panicking because less than 1% of the supposedly healthy crew might die of COVID-19 while 85% can function as normal & stay on ship (quarantine) for 2-4 weeks, much shorter than a 6 month deployment. Aircraft carriers are noted for their tip top shape in preparedness. They have all PPE for Radiations, Germs, Chemical, Gas, & Fires, vaccinated with all extremely lethal diseases brewing in each personnel's system, & physical readiness.
The Captain might have panicked for political reason or partisan news media disinformation. Only 450 something got infected when they're all literally living like sardines for 3 to 6 months at sea. There are 5,000 sailors on the ship, once in a while there'll be a sailor or two that will jump over. Though the sailors that jumps over board may halt some operations for some hours, it isn't a cause for panic. There are sailors that becomes ill & injured, but it doesn't cripple the whole ship & prevent the ship from performing its duties. In a ship of 5,000 physically fit & ready sailors, which data has determined to not be at a risk of sever illness with COVID-19. Only 1 person got hospitalized. The person would have been airlifted, if the ship medic couldn't care for the person, if the ship was still out at sea. The NAVY has gone soft having a Capt. & crew that are not as focused to their mission. You can take preparation routinely, but there are certain situation that no amount of preparation can control like snowflakes, The NAVY needs a Patton.

The USA has about 1/5 as many deaths as the top 5 European countries, and France & Germany are falsifying their statistics.

Because we have a robust national defense system. A robust national crisis management system, not so much.

the virus attacks the individual not the military so it doesn't care if America is the greatest country with the greatest power .
IT actually loves the fact that there is no socialized health care system because it can kill more people

Because we put money above all else. We look at the price of what we want and buy the cheapest. We did not care what that decision would do to American industry. So we bought Japanese and German cars and hurt our own automakers. We buy clothing an shoes made in Asia and screw our own industries. Our companies know we go for cheap so they will do what it takes to make things cheap, including sending jobs to Asia and Mexico. We are screwed. The USA had its century of being the top dog, now it is China's turn.

We put all our money into wars in other countries and not healthcare for the people.

The notions are unrelated.
There is no nation of consequence that is not struggling.
