NSW COVID case numbers: one death as state adds 372 local cases, two overseas arrivals

NSW case numbers have jumped back over 300 after two days below that mark, with one death added to the state's COVID-19 toll.

Two new international arrivals joined 372 locally acquired COVID-19 infections, taking the state's 24-hour total to 374.

Across the state 124 people are in intensive care, with 523 people requiring treatment in hospital.

First doses of vaccine have hit 92.5 per cent in adults, while the double vaccination percentage has climbed to 82.3 per cent.

NSW chief health officer Dr Kerry Chant has indicated she will be particularly interested in next week's case numbers as an indicator of how much the end of lockdown has influenced the spread of the virus in NSW.

A detailed breakdown, including numbers by health district, is expected at 11am.
