More than half the population of the United States has been ordered to stay at home as states ramp up efforts to contain the novel coronavirus.

The situation now: At least 15 states and 30 municipalities have ordered more than 166 million people, or 51% of the US population to stay home, according to data compiled by CNN using US Census population estimates. 

What’s next: At least two additional states and five municipalities will have orders going into effect later this week for their full population.

The total: When all orders take effect, more than 180 million people will be impacted by the orders, or 55% of the US population.
