Studio 17 Live

Studio 17’s Ilyana Capellan asks Dr. Niranjan Dass for advice on how to slow the spread of the latest COVID-19 variant; medical advisors predict a jump in COVID-19 after the holiday season.

“This new variant spreads more than the Delta variant; the Delta doubles in 11 days while the Omicron variant doubles in 2 days,” says Dr. Dass. He explains that the new variant has even infected those who are vaccinated and urges everyone to take full precautions. These safety tips include:

  • Get vaccinated and get the booster shot
  • Wear masks indoors in group settings
  • Get tested regularly for COVID-19
  • Socially distance when possible
  • Practice good hygiene and hand washing
