US, (Daily Mail), 23 March 2020 -  Ohio and Louisiana have joined nine other states in ordering residents to stay at home to help curb the spread of the coronavirus.   
Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards announced the ‘stay at home’ directives at press conferences in their respective states on Sunday.   


The orders affect some 16 million residents across both states and exempt those who work in essential services such as healthcare and the food industry.  
‘The bottom line is we are in a race against time when it comes to this coronavirus and it’s rapid spread in Louisiana,’ Edwards said, as the number of cases in his state surpassed 830, including 20 deaths.  


Statewide lockdowns have already been ordered in nine other states - New Jersey, California, New York, Illinois, Connecticut, Pennsylvania, Oregon, Texas and Florida - with a total of 167.5 million people now affected.
