NSW has recorded another five COVID-related deaths and 262 new locally-acquired infections.
The deaths reported on Thursday include three people in their 60s, one person in their 70s and one person in their 80s.
“I want to convey that unfortunately four out of those five people were not vaccinated at all, and one person had one dose of AstraZeneca,” NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian said.
“No-one who has died has had both doses of vaccine.”
Of the new cases reported on Thursday, at least 45 were infectious in the community.
