To explain the situation, Caesar was visited by Malcolm played by Jason Clarke. Malcolm is an architect who lost his wife due to the Simian flu.

Everyone assume Caesar died and attack the humans. Caesar who was heavily wounded was safe by Malcolm and his family. Caesar was brought back to his own house back in the city and recuperated there.
Once he was strong enough, he brought the battle to Koba.
