The US has recorded over 7 million COVID-19 cases with over 203,000 deaths, the highest of any country — and with no end to the pandemic in sight.

"I feel sorry for Americans," U Myint Oo, a member of parliament in Myanmar told The New York Times. "But we can't help the US because we are a very small country."

The Pew Research Center's Summer 2020 Global attitudes survey, which looked into how favorable 13 countries viewed the US on a variety of topics, reported that the US's image has "plummeted" internationally since President Donald Trump took office, but the country's image is especially low due to the handling of the pandemic.

How Trump let Covid-19 win

  How Trump let Covid-19 win Trump’s magical thinking couldn’t beat the coronavirus. America is stuck with the consequences.The US wasn’t able to fully and safely reopen in April. It isn’t able to fully and safely reopen in September.

Covid - 19 shows how vulnerable we remain – and how we can avoid similar pandemics in the future. While reporting my book End Times, I visited the epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch at his office at the Just as the eventual emergence of something like Covid - 19 was easily predictable, so too are the actions

COVID - 19 causes a wide range of symptoms, many of which appear in other respiratory illnesses such as the flu and the common cold. It's also important to note that estimates of flu illnesses and deaths from the CDC are just that — estimates (which make certain assumptions) rather than raw numbers.

Across 13 countries, including Canada, Australia, and Spain, the US has been viewed in the most negative light over the past year, compared to years past. They are especially critical of the US's handling of the pandemic according to Pew.

"Across the 13 nations surveyed, a median of just 15% say the US has done a good job of dealing with the outbreak," the Pew report said.

The highest rating was Spain at just 20% of respondents saying the US is doing a good job dealing with the outbreak, according to the Pew survey.

Some officials told The Times they were concerned about how a global superpower could crumble due to a virus.

Earlier this summer, the European Union was so concerned about the spread of COVID-19 from Americans that they banned US travelers.

"The USA is a first-world country but it is acting like a third-world country," U Aung Thu Nyein, a political analyst in Myanmar, told The Times.

The World Is Winning—and Losing—the Vaccine Race. Immunization to COVID - 19 is supposed to solve COVID - 19 is undermining the basic tenets of global manufacturing. Companies will now rethink and Secondly, this is not yet the end of an interconnected world . The pandemic itself is proof of our

COVID - 19 deaths are identified using a new ICD–10 code. When COVID - 19 is reported as a cause of death – or when it is listed as a “probable” or “presumed” cause — the death is coded as U07.1. This can include cases with or without laboratory confirmation. Why These Numbers are Different.

Additionally, while other residents have said that their own nations have done well to handle the outbreak, only in the US and the United Kingdom did respondents give their respective countries poor marks.

In July, The Washington Post reported that as Americans lost faith in their own country's handling of the pandemic, as well as social unrest, the world also began to "question the United States' appetite or capacity for a collaborative leadership role at a time when the health and economic crises call out for committed global cooperation."

Mike Bradley, the mayor of Sarnia, an industrial city on the border with Michigan told The Times that seeing what's happening in the US is "like watching the decline of the Roman Empire."

The Times reported that the negative views go beyond just the pandemic, and apply to Trump and his administration, who several foreign politicians and analysts said appear to have left democratic values behind. Many are concerned about the ongoing protests for racial justice and comments made by Trump to not accept the election results.

"We used to look to the US for democratic governance inspiration," Eduardo Bohórquez, the director of Transparency International Mexico told The Times. "Sadly, this is not the case anymore."

Yenny Wahid, an Indonesian politician, and activist told The Times she's concerned over Trump's rhetoric that undermines democratic values could embolden dictators elsewhere.

"The world sees the dismantling of social cohesion within American society and the mess in managing COVID," Wahid said. "There is a vacuum of leadership that needs to be filled, but America is not fulfilling that leadership role."
