U-K researchers believe the best strategy is to release half of the population two to four weeks from the end of the initial peak, then wait three to four months to allow a second possible peak to pass before releasing everyone else.

Researchers from Boston University School of Medicine have created a specialized eye-scanner that can determine how quickly or slowly someone is aging. The device measures signals from proteins in the lens of the eye that shows how a person is aging at a molecular level. Researchers believe the discovery will help determine more precise medical care.
