The state of California has called on residents to stay at home, as the new coronavirus infects more people across the United States.

California is among the worst hit in the US. Nearly 40 million people live in the western state. US health workers say they are desperately grappling with shortages of masks, gowns and other protective equipment. The US government has promised a one-trillion emergency relief package to combat the economic turmoil caused by the epidemic. President Donald Trump is under fire for his response to the crisis. Trump has also sparked an international row after he accused China of being secretive about the initial spread of the disease and its severity.
