The Pentagon revised the number of U.S. service members diagnosed with traumatic brain injuries (TBI) following Iran's Jan 7. attack on U.S. bases in Iraq to 50 on Tuesday.

The big picture: This is the third time the Pentagon has updated the figures for those injured in the attack. Per the CDC, TBIs are not always detected immediately after they've been sustained.

This is a snapshot in time and numbers can change."
— Pentagon spokesperson Thomas Campbell

Flashback: On Jan. 17, the Defense Department said 11 troops were "evacuated from Iraq with concussion-like symptoms," AP notes.

What they're saying: 31 of the 50 service members injured were treated in Iraq and returned to duty, "including 15 of the additional service members who have been diagnosed since the previous report," Pentagon spokesperson Lt. Col. Thomas Campbell said in a statement.

"18 service members have been transported to Germany for further evaluation and treatment. This is an increase of one service member from the previous report. As previously reported, one service member had been transported to Kuwait and has since returned to duty."

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio announced at a press conference on Wednesday that schools will not fully reopen in fall, and will instead adopt a hybrid model that will limit in-person attendance to just one to three days a week.

Why it matters: New York City, once the epicenter of the coronavirus outbreak in the United States, is home to the nation's largest public school district — totaling 1,800 schools and 1.1 million students, according to the New York Times. The partial reopening plan could prevent hundreds of thousands of parents from fully returning to work.
