The White House has directed the State Department and government agencies to investigate “unexplained health incidents” that have caused symptoms similar to the “Havana syndrome” suffered by American diplomats and intelligence operatives abroad. 

The White House released a statement saying that it is taking all actions against American citizens seriously. 

“The White House is working closely with departments and agencies to address unexplained health incidents and ensure the safety and security of Americans serving around the world. Given that we are still evaluating reported incidents and that we need to protect the privacy of individuals reporting incidents, we cannot provide or confirm specific details at this time.”

The Mysterious Incidents Are Pilling Up

Several news sources reported that in late 2016 American embassy personnel in Cuba began experiencing unexplained symptoms, such as dizziness and pounding headaches, sometimes accompanied by an unidentified “piercing directional noise.” Then, these issues began to affect American personnel in Russia and China.
