All the people injured in the April 14 earthquake that jolted Yushu prefecture in northwest China's Qinghai Province, are treated free of medical charges, said a senior health official in Yushu on Sunday.

Wang Xiaoqin, deputy director of Qinghai Provincial Health Bureau, said the quake victims were not only treated for free during the first month after the earthquake, but also free of charges until they are cured and discharged from hospital.

The death toll from the 7.1-magnitude earthquake climbed to 2,203 as of 5 p.m. Saturday, with 73 people still missing and more than 12,000 injured.

Civil affairs authorities in Qinghai said Saturday children orphaned, elderly widowed and people disabled in the quake would get 1,000 yuan (146 U.S. dollars) of the monthly allowance per person for three months.
