Canada's chief public health officer, Dr. Theresa Tam, said that while there are signs that actions to curb the spread of the virus are working, Canada needs to "double down" to stop outbreaks in high-risk settings.

"Long-term care homes and seniors' residences have been severely impacted," she told reporters Thursday morning.

"But there are other vulnerable groups that urgently need our attention, including people who are experiencing homelessness and precarious housing."

She said models are now predicting between 1,200 and 1,620 deaths from COVID-19 by April 21.

Previous projections, however, were only forecasting between 500 and 700 deaths as of this week — far below the current total.

In Ontario and Quebec, the two provinces hardest hit by the pandemic, about 1,500 new cases of COVID-19 were confirmed Thursday. In both provinces, dozens of seniors' care facilities are grappling with outbreaks of the virus.

Quebec has nearly 16,000 cases of the virus as of Thursday, while Ontario has just under 9,000.
