China Has No Evidence of Alleged Illness of US Diplomats

The US embassy in Beijing on Friday issued a health alert for its citizens after government employees were evacuated, the second alert in two weeks, sparking fear the case may be linked to events in Cuba.

State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said "a number of individuals" had been brought to the US but didn't say how many were affected or evacuated.

The U.S. has sent a medical team to evaluate workers at the U.S. consulate in Guangzhou, China. Unexplained sounds and vibrations that accompanied the symptoms initially led investigators to suspect a sonic weapon, although an interim Federal Bureau of Investigation report in January said no evidence had been uncovered that sound waves could have damaged the Americans' health, the AP reported.

Beginning in 2016, at least 10 Canadian workers and 24 U.S. Embassy employees working in Havana, Cuba showed mysterious health symptoms related to unexplained sounds. It advised them "not to attempt to locate the source of any unidentified auditory sensation".

Two officials told the Associated Press the individuals have been brought for testing to the University of Pennsylvania, where doctors have been evaluating, treating and studying Americans affected in Cuba previous year as well as nearly 10 new possible cases from a US consulate in China.

Asked about the latest incidents, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying said Thursday that the US had not formally raised the matter with Beijing.

The administration of U.S. President Donald Trump, which has partly rolled back a detente with Cuba, first charged diplomats were the victims of "sonic attacks" and Cuba as the host country was at a minimum responsible for their safety.

China reaffirmed today that its official investigations had not found any evidence of alleged health problems of US diplomats working in this country.

There have been several reports of possible sonic attacks at the USA consulate in Guangzhou, China.

Recall that from China sent several American diplomats and their family members to undergo medical examinations. The Canadian government followed suit in April and directed the families of diplomatic staff in Cuba to return home.
