Local authorities say the injured have been immediately sent to various local hospitals for treatment. One hospital in Nanjing has received about 82 people suffering fractures and burns.

We have also classified the patients at three different levels for different treatment, which is according to international criteria. Every patient is looked after by one doctor and one nurse.
