Get Empowered to Deal With the Coronavirus


At Discount Motor City, used cars for sale in Surrey, BC, we are always looking for ways to make our service better and new ways to help our customers. During this time of the Coronavirus crisis, we are especially diligent to find credible information that we can pass along to you.

Recently, a friend living in Mexico passed a video on to me. In my view, it is more than worth the time to watch it and you can access it by CLICKING HERE. The video is the best I have seen describing what we need to do to be safe.

The Scare Factor

There is a desire to scare us into doing what is necessary. Many do not see us as taking this issue seriously. All one has to do is look at some of the poor examples from around our city; for example, not taking social distancing seriously. So, the fear factor comes in, where we are driven to submission by the scare factor.

The scare factor may work for some; but for many, as most of us have observed, it does not work, and that brings us to the second stage.

Do Not Treat Us Like Children

Treating us like children and giving us instructions does not work. What will work is providing us credible information so that we can be empowered to act. Act in a way that is good for us and for our families. It is not difficult, and it does not have to be scary.

The Information Age

The medical world is beginning to understand this disease. Protecting ourselves and our loved ones is as simple as being empowered by understanding the disease, how it spreads and what can simply be done to protect us.

We do not have to be scared and we can protect ourselves and our families.

How do You Contact the Coronavirus?


The overarching theme is you must have sustained contact with someone who is infected. That means, being in close contact with others who have the disease for 20 – 30 minutes. That is why it is not a good idea to stand or walk close to someone for a period of time – they may have it and you may not know it – easily resolved with Social Distancing.

The second is, the disease spreads through contact.

The way that one almost exclusively gets this disease is by contact from the hands to the face. The virus enters the body through the eyes, the nose or the mouth. If you have the virus on your hands and touch your face, more than likely you are going to get sick.

The overwhelming majority of people who are contacting this disease are touching someone who has the disease, or will show symptoms in one to two days, and then they touch their face.

A simple solution is, know where your hands are at all times, maintain social distancing and do not touch your hands to your face.

Knowing that is incredibly empowering; we can take simple precautions to protect ourselves, and our family.

Cold Hard Facts

The Coronavirus is in our community and all around us. This is not to scare anyone, but we cannot ignore the fact. But, by being empowered, we can all take the simple and necessary steps to protect ourselves and our family.

Know where your hands are and what they are doing all the time. You do not have to be scared to leave your home; if you touch something like the door handle, or the elevator button, immediately sanitize your hands. After everything you touch, clean your hands.

In the supermarket, sanitize the food basket before you grab hold of it. Don’t be afraid to sanitize during your shopping and as best as possible, maintain your social distance.

The Empowerment

The two things that are incredibly powerful:

1. If you keep your hands clean and sanitize them every time you touch

something, you will likely be safe.

2. If you do not touch your hands to your face, you will likely be safe.

Just by doing those two simple things, the good doctor on the video suggests there is a 99% chance you will not get the Coronavirus. And not much could be better than that.
