- There are more than 20 new cases of the ‘Havana Syndrome’ reported by American diplomats in Vienna, Austria
- The ‘Havana Syndrome’ is a mysterious illness that got its name after diplomats in Havana developed the same symptoms in 2016 and 2017
- While there’s no definitive cause, the symptoms are same: headaches, dizziness and symptoms consistent with concussions
- Some believe the unexplained injuries, which include brain damage, are the result of attacks with microwave or radio wave weapons
There are more than 20 new cases of the ‘Havana Syndrome’ among US diplomats in Vienna, Austria that are being looked at by medical teams at the State Department, Pentagon and CIA.
It’s part of a recent rash of mysterious health incidents that have similar symptoms to those first reported by US diplomats and spies in Havana, Cuba, in 2016 and 2017 for which no definitive cause has yet been determined.
Symptoms include headaches, dizziness and symptoms consistent with concussions and some have required months of medical treatment. Some have reported hearing a loud noise before the sudden onset of symptoms.
‘In coordination with our partners across the US government, we are vigorously investigating reports of possible unexplained health incidents among the US Embassy Vienna community,’ the State Department said.
‘Any employees who reported a possible UHI received immediate and appropriate attention and care.’
