Who in their right mind would make a deck out of ply wood? Were is the water going to go when it rains? Tear up the ply wood and do it right.

Now I figure your going to come back and say it's pressure treated so it will be fine. Sorry no form of plywood should ever be used for decking ever.
It will delaminite, and mold up. nope no form of treatment, paint or stain is going to change the fact.
