Los Angeles residents were ordered to stay at home by the city's mayor Eric Garcetti on Thursday in a bid to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

"I'm issuing a Safer at Home emergency order -- ordering all residents of @LACity to stay inside their homes and immediately limit all nonessential movement," he tweeted.

"We're taking this urgent action to limit the spread of COVID-19 and save lives."
