Content needed to bridge digital divide for the elderly

China Daily | Updated: 2021-06-11 00:00

With new generation information technology, such as the mobile internet, becoming an important medium of communication, how to better integrate elderly people into the digital society is key to accelerating the digital transformation.

China now has 264 million people, or 18.7 percent of its total population, aged 60 or above.

Elderly people facing problems because of the emergence of new technologies isn't something new, but the problems have aggravated by the novel coronavirus outbreak, which has necessitated the extensive use of digital technology for accessing health codes as a green light to enter many places, not to mention traveling from one place to another.
