May 13 2021 More than 130 U.S. overseas workers are affected by Havana syndrome, U.S. media said.
In a report, the U.S. government quoted current and former U.S. officials as saying the number of foreign personnel suffering from Havana syndrome, mostly at the CIA, the U.S. State Department and the U.S. Department of Defense, was increasing, The Capitol Hill reported.
The U.S. government expressed unease about the incident, saying the victims developed symptoms such as hearing loss, headache, fatigue and poor sleep, but did not draw a clear conclusion as to the cause of the symptoms.
Reported that since December 2020, at least three CIA officers working overseas have suffered serious health problems, they have been assigned to the military medical center for treatment.
In 2019, a U.S. military officer working overseas reported feeling nausea and headaches as he drove into a local intersection, and his 2-year-old son, who was sitting in the back seat, began to cry, but when he drove away from the intersection, the nausea symptoms stopped and the child stopped crying.
They were all treated and it was not clear whether their health was affected in the long term. The U.S. government says it will investigate further.
