A flood of new reports, including freshly identified cases around the world, has surfaced.
With as many as 200 Americans coming forward to identify probable signs of directed energy attacks, according to Western sources.
An American official who has seen the cables revealing new possible cases of the so-called Havana Syndrome says they come in often, sometimes several times a week.
U.S. officials and others with knowledge of the situation have claimed that at least one diplomat’s tenure in Germany was cut short due to an event that occurred recently but was not previously publicised.
First Syndrome of Havana Appeared in the U.S. Embassy in Cuba
In 2016, U.S. Embassy employees in Cuba began falling ill for unknown reasons, marking the first appearance of Havana syndrome. Some were hospitalised for weeks, while others suffered permanent brain damage.
Although the origin of the ailment remains a mystery, some have speculated that it may have been caused by a radio wave weapon attack from the United States’ enemies.
A Defense Department spokeswoman told NBC that the department is “heavily engaged” on the problem as part of the –
“Federal government-wide interagency process overseen by the [National Security Council] to handle anomalous health episodes.”
“The safety, health, and welfare of our staff remains a major priority for the Department,” the official said.
Reasons for Havana Syndrome
Despite the fact that it has been five years since the first reports of Havana syndrome, researchers still haven’t figured out what causes it.
Numerous hypotheses have circulated since then, ranging from mental illness to the use of a sonic weapon.
However, a research by the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine suggests that microwave radiation is the “plausible” reason (NAS).
Purely a Stress-Related Illness?
A different group has been quick to discount the illness, pinning the symptoms seen by US diplomats on the strain of working in foreign embassies.
UCLA neurology professor Robert W. Baloh reportedly described it as a “mass psychogenic” (stress-related) illness.
Baloh compared the situation to the way people react when they are told they have eaten poisoned food, even if there was nothing wrong with it.
“In most cases of widespread psychosomatic illness, a stressful event or set of circumstances is to blame.
Of course the embassy workers in Cuba, and especially the CIA agents who were the first to feel the effects, were under pressure “Baloh made these remarks, according to a BBC report.
According to the report, there exist devices with “minimal energy requirements” that can emit pulsed electromagnetic energy.
The symptoms noticed could be caused by these “concealable” devices. According to a study in The Guardian, they may be effective over much greater distances, including through walls.
