China to fingerprint foreign visitors 14-70 by end of 2017

Currently, foreign visitors are fingerprinted on arrival at POE Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport / SZX, but by the end of 2017 China intends to fingerprint all foreign visitors age 14-70 on arrival from international origins (much as has been done in the US since 2004. (International Travel News, April 2017.)

Why the age cutoff?

I can understand on the young side but why on the old?

Because seniors are considered too decrepit to be a threat?
Because old fingers are so wrinkled that they can't get clear prints off of them?

Chinese tradition of law age 70 is old age. Confucian philosophy of filial piety.

Similar to China's policy of 128 days paid maternity leave. The country has a different level of respect for human rights...
