China's top health authority said Sunday all injured in recent earthquakes in Gansu and Qinghai provinces have received prompt and effective treatment, while medical services are returning to normal in affected regions.

The National Health Commission has dispatched two national emergency medical rescue teams to disaster-stricken regions, enabling treatment of the injured in dedicated facilities by medical professionals from across the country with all necessary resources.

Together with local medical staff, national experts in orthopedics, general surgery, psychology and other departments have implemented targeted treatment, carried out patrol diagnosis and organized psychological counseling for the affected populations.

In cooperation with the National Administration of Traditional Chinese Medicine and Chinese Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the commission will further coordinate medical resources, strengthen healthcare services and spare no efforts to treat the wounded.

To avoid major post-disaster epidemics, the authorities will conduct continuous real-time monitoring and risk assessment of infectious diseases and carry out sanitation and epidemic prevention work such as drinking water monitoring and environmental disinfection.
