The three ideas you all are writing me the most about

1. Segregating old people, and letting others go about their regular business.  Given how many older people now work (and vote), and how many employees in nursing homes are young, I’ve yet to see a good version of this plan, but if you favor it please do try to write one up.  One of you suggested taking everyone over the age of 65 and encasing them in bubble wrap, or something.

2. Tracking and surveillance by smart phones.  Here is one story, here is another.  Here is an Oxford project.  Singapore is using related ideas, China has too.

3. Testing as many Americans as possible, or at least a representative sample, to get data.

I hope to analyze these more in the future.
