Why is Bloomberg's COVID Resilience Ranking flawed?

Bloomberg's recent COVID Resilience Ranking has confused the world. It ranks the U.S., which has recorded the most confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths, as number one. Meanwhile, places like the Chinese mainland and Australia, which have often been praised for their decisive COVID-19 measures, rank lower than expected. Why is the public so skeptical about this report? And what's wrong with its methodology?
