Number of brain injuries increasing following Iranian attack on US base

The score of US troops suffering from TBI traumatic brain injuries after Iran’s attack on a US base in Iraq in January has escalated to 109, as per US officials.
The number shows a considerable rise from the 64 injured militants formerly reported by the pentagon.
Initially, US President Donald Trump held no American was injured in the incursion.
January 8, the attack was retaliation to the killing of Iranian general by the US.
The pentagon further stated, about 70 of the injured service members came back to their duties.
Mr. Trump originally alluded to the lack of injury in his pronouncement not to hitting back against Iran.
An increased number of cases came out from the slight form of injury which means symptoms require time to be obvious, the pentagon held in a press conference in January.
US republican representative Joni Ernst required more justifications on Monday.
He posted on twitter “we must have a plan to treat these injured service members”. Further “I’ve called on the Pentagon to ensure the safety and care of our deployed forces that may be exposed to blast injuries in Iraq”.
US President Donald Trump devalued the implication of traumatic brain injuries while posing about the impact of the raid.
He said, “I heard that they had headaches, and a couple of other things, but I would say, and I can report, it’s not very serious”.
He said: “I don’t consider them very serious injuries relative to other injuries I have seen” while asked about potential TBIs.
TBIs are frequent in warzones, as per the US troops.
The widespread cause of a TBI for service members is an explosion, the US Defense and Veterans’ brain injury center notes down.
They are considered moderate, mild, penetrating or severe. Concussion or a mils TBI attack can be caused by an explosion and blast’s “atmospheric over-pressure followed by under-pressure or vacuum”.
The air vacuum can penetrate solid objects, can avoid blunt force trauma for soldiers, and can still have an invisible brain injury.
Since 2000, more than 400,000 militants have been diagnosed with TBI, according to the US government.–Worldwide News
