Coronavirus USA Live Updates: 1 in 5 Americans now subject to stay-at-home

With more than 70 million people in three states told to remain in their homes, the mounting nationwide bid to blunt the spread of the novel coronavirus pandemic translates to at least one in five Americans being homebound indefinitely.

California, New York and Illinois led the way in requesting their residents socially distance themselves from the highly contagious virus – which has infected more than 275,000 worldwide and caused more than 11,400 deaths – by remaining in their homes, The Washington Post reported.

Within hours of these high-profile requests, other states and cities began following suit.

The number of novel coronavirus cases in the United States neared 20,000 across all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands late Thursday night.

According to researchers at Johns Hokpins University, there are at least 19,624 confirmed cases of the virus, which have resulted in a total of at least 258 deaths to date.

Of the confirmed deaths, 82 have occurred in Washington state, 53 in New York and 24 in California.

In terms of diagnosed cases, New York is now the hardest hit with more than 8,300 confirmed cases – more than five times any other state – followed by Washington with 1,513 and California with 1,077.

The figures include 21 people aboard the Grand Princess cruise ship and 49 repatriated citizens. The repatriations include 46 sickened aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship and three others retrieved from the outbreak’s epicenter in Wuhan, China.

The complete state-by-state breakdown – including presumptive cases – of the 19,554 cases detected on U.S. soil is as follows:
