You Can Get Both Omicron and Delta at Same Time

Marcelo Coyi

And while he was on Open Your Eyes, Doctor Coyi shared something that medical professionals know, but which may be new to the public: you can get a combination of two COVID-19 variants at the same time.  He also explained that people’s behaviour will dictate how the pandemic plays out, both for individuals and the wider community.


Dr. Marcelo Coyi, Member, COVID-19 Task Force

“Right now there is a mixture. You can get the delta and the omicron at the same time. Of course. You can’t say I will take off the mask because I want the omicron. You don’t get to choose. Irrespective of the protective effect, you do the same public health measures. And I have said, you know, the course of this pandemic is not affected by how much I.C.U. beds you have, how much respirators you have. Because that is the end point of infection. The course of this pandemic will be determined by the behaviour of we, and if we continue have this activity that puts you at risk, getting in groups, ot using your mask and what have you. That is what is going to drive the course of this pandemic.”
