Another day of high numbers in New South Wales.

The state has 452 cases today, at least 50 infectious in the community, and a woman in her 70s has died.

The virus is spreading to younger people, with 75 percent of today's cases under-40s.

Premier Gladys Berejiklian says lots of people are playing their part in fighting the virus.

She says the state is on track for six million people vaccinated by the end of August.

Victoria has 24 cases, while Queensland has one.
