The July 5th's riot in Urumqi left more than a thousand people injured. Many of the victims are recovering in hospitals. Doctors are making strong efforts to help patients cope with the trauma.
Medical staff from hospitals responded immediately when the violence struck. Paramedics risked their lives to save victims of all ethnic groups.
And doctors have maintained the tradition of house calls.
Zhuang Shihua, President of Armed Police Xinjiang Contingent Hospital, said, "It's been hard for patients to see doctors. So we go to their homes during breaks or at lunch for check ups, while explaining policies on ethnic unity."
