More U.S. Diplomats Evacuated After Possible ‘Sonic Attack’ in China

The symptoms were similar to those found in the case of USA diplomatic personnel who worked in Cuba, including mild traumatic brain injury.

The most recent evacuations followed medical testing that revealed they might have been affected.

In the Cuba episode past year, 21 people fell ill with injuries including hearing loss, cognitive difficulties and sleep problems in what the State Department called an "attack". "If there is any problem, the USA can directly tell us".

Mark Lenzi, a security-engineering officer at the consulate, left the consulate Wednesday evening with his wife and two children after experiencing unusual sounds like marbles rolling around a metal funnel that he connected to neurological symptoms. We learnt this from the report of the New York Times.

Lenzi, his wife, who also reportedly complained of hearing weird noises in their apartment, and their two children departed for the United States on Wednesday evening.

The US embassy in China has issued a new alert over a mystery illness affecting some of its diplomats.

In 2017, 24 diplomats and their family members left Cuba after suffering from unexplained symptoms including dizziness, headaches, cognitive issues, and visual problems.

A Chinese government investigation has shed no light on why a USA diplomat fell ill at the consulate in Guangzhou after hearing mysterious sounds, an official said Thursday.

In testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee last month about the first case in China, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said China had "said all the right things and have demonstrated their willingness to help us identify the vector which led to this medical incident". The task force's role includes "identification and treatment of affected personnel and family members, investigation and risk mitigation, messaging, and diplomatic outreach".

The incidents have raised concerns that a government or agency may be targeting the U.S. with a new type of sonic weapon.
