Covid in the US has been horribly mismanaged in the blue states. The US death toll is inflated because of them. If you exclude the deaths from blue states that voted for Hillary the total US deaths would be lower than Brazil's. If you exclude states that have large Democrat cities like Georgia, Ohio, Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania, and North Carolina, the US deaths would actually even be lower than India and Mexico's. If you exclude the states with large number of Democrats, the US death toll would be fourth in the world not first, and the narrative that Trump handled Covid poorly starts to unravel.
