In a modern society like Japan, a recent scandal involved “missing” centenarians.
The oldest man in Japan was already dead for past 30 years.
He was last seen when he in his 80s and since then, the authority continue to pay the pension to him and they are presuming he is well and alive after 30 years.
Are the Japan centenarian census being naive or just plain ignorance?
Life come and go, human is born and human is passing on.
It’s a fact of life.
