A new law has gone into effect in China. The law requires adults to visit their elderly parents often and to keep in touch. However, the law isn’t clear as to what “often” is and what the punishment is if adults don’t visit their parents. According to the CIA World Factbook, about 125 million people in China are over the age of 65 years. That is more than the entire population of most countries in the world. There are only 10 countries with a population of over 125 million. You can view a list of countries by population here.
