Because the 'Greatest Country on Earth' has a small problem with critical care resources: They've all been shipped to Jared and Ivanka's basement bunker.
Much as it pains me to defend America, but you're wrong here in thinking USA should have the resources to deal with this.
No country can plan to have as many critical care patients as they need for a novel pandemic. The exponential growth means that even if you had enough ICU beds, there wouldn't be enough people to staff them. This is what I've been trying to say from the beginning - massive numbers of people will need critical care, and when they're staying in those ICU beds for 2-5 weeks, it's not possible to deal with it under normal circumstances.
Arizona will be fine anyway - they can use that navy ship they didn't need in NY.
The problem is entirely letting the virus run out of control, and it's enormously clear that some governors of both colours didn't take the lessons of NY & NJ on board and are now making their people pay the price for it.
