"This is a moment where we need some straight talk and we need to tell people the truth: We need to bend the curve in the state of California."

This measure, however, will last until April 19 and will come into effect at midnight, Friday March 20.

It has directed all businesses, including museums, shopping centres, retail stores, and workplaces, to stop operating.

People will only be able to leave their home for essential activities like visits to the doctor or picking up groceries.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti said: "Los Angeles, this our moment to lead with love and protect those lives that mean everything to us. This is not a request, this is an order.

"We've already radically changed how we live in Los Angeles. We need to be painfully honest tonight that we're about to enter into a new way of living here."
