A new report released by the China Will Registration Center says that fearing death more young Chinese people are preparing wills than ever before. Citing the China Registration Center report, South China Morning Post (SCMP) reported that the pandemic has forced more young people to think about death and their assets. From 2019 to 2020, the number of will writers born after 1990 has grown 60 per cent, faster than in previous years, the report says.
