If the USA has the best healthcare in the world, why do we have the highest COVID death rate in the world?

Because the idea that we have the best HC in the world is a lie. We *do* have the "potential" to have the best healthcare, but like in many other ways, the US consistently falls short of it's potential.

Because we do not have the best health care in the world and we have an incompetent leader messing things up.

Where did you ever get the idea that we have the best healthcare in the world? We don’t. As a matter of fact mainstream medicine, particularly being joined at the hip as it is with with Pig Pharma and it’s poison pills, happens to be the third leading cause of death in this country. Another reason it’s probably been so bad here is because so many Americans eat garbage food, don’t get exercise and so forth. But when you go to your family doctor complaining of high blood pressure or diabetes, etc, don’t expect them to tell you to alter your diet and get more exercise. They’ll just give you a Pig Pharma poison pill. There’s even a good chance that the drugs they already gave you contributed to your high blood pressure and blood sugar problems in the first place.

Because the US does NOT have the best health care in the world, try the 37th best, and because the orange traitor is a massive lying moron.

We don't. The US has been testing everyone that dies for Covid-19, and counting all positive tests in the Covid-19 numbers, even if the actual cause of death is a gunshot to the back of the head. Many countries don't even test for Covid-19 if you were already dying of cancer, or some other issue.

Because in order to get the best healthcare in the U.S, you need to have the money to get it. Most people don't have the money to afford the best healthcare.

Hahaha thanks needs a good laugh first thing in the morning. US having the best healthcare....try one of the worst. Most other countries have better systems in place and it is actually socialized medicine care that works.
The reason there are so many cases is because people are not doing what they have been told because they claim it is against the constitution to wear a mask, be in quarantine and more. They are just spreaders of the disease. Countries in Africa are handling it better.

Well the fact is you don't have the best healthcare in the world, if by that you mean the standard of healthcare delivered to the whole population, rather than just what rich Americans can afford.

Other countries have a higher death rate if you factor population. We just look like the highest because we have 330 million people. Spain, Belgium and others have a higher rate for their population size.

America -- probably -- has the highest death rate in the democratic world .
The statistics from most "authoritarian states " , one should take with a pinch of salt
