[Liu Xuxia, special correspondent of The Global Times in Mexico, Global Times Special Correspondent Wang Yi] Dizziness, nausea, migraine and memory loss...... These mysterious symptoms, called "Havana syndrome", originally reported by diplomats from the US Embassy in Cuba, have appeared in many parts of the world for five years and have been hyped by the US media, and even once affected US-Cuban relations. According to Agence France-Presse reported on the 14th, the Cuban government convened a team of 16 experts from different fields of the Academy of Sciences to conduct research on the "Havana Syndrome. The Cuban Academy of Sciences issued a report on the 13th that the so-called "Havana syndrome" in the United States is "scientifically unacceptable" and that there is "no scientific evidence of such an attack" on Cuban territory ".
Russian television today said on the 13th that US politicians and researchers suspect that "Havana syndrome" may be caused by some kind of sound wave or microwave weapon attack, but Cuban scientists refuted this speculation on the 13th. Cuban experts said in the report that some people have accepted that "it is an axiom that the attack took place in Havana. However, four years later, no evidence has emerged to substantiate the attack "," and despite the intensive investigation, the Cuban police, neither the US Federal Bureau of Investigation nor the Royal Canadian Mounted Police found evidence that diplomats in Havana were 'attack ". Experts say that under conditions in which Havana is reported to have related symptoms, no known form of energy can selectively cause brain damage, and most of the reported symptoms can be explained by disease, that means "no new syndrome". They said that any new evidence will continue to be evaluated in the future.
According to The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU report the first batch of Havana syndrome cases 5 years ago in Havana, Cuba members of the diplomatic community in. This mysterious illness afflicts American and Canadian diplomats, intelligence agents and embassy staff. According to statistics, since 2016, more than 200 people have this symptom. In addition to Cuba, similar cases have been reported in China, Germany, Australia, Colombia, Uzbekistan, Russia, Austria, and even Washington, USA. The most recent of which was dated at the end of last month, was the vice-president of the United States Harris to visit Viet Nam of the stroke is delayed 3 hours because the United States Vietnam embassy staff was reportedly Havana syndrome ".
According to Agence France-Presse, the Trump administration has withdrawn U.S. staff in Havana and expelled Cuban diplomats from Washington, suggesting that Cuba may be behind the "sonic attack. Last month, when U.S. officials working in Germany also developed "Havana syndrome", Cabanas, a former diplomat who headed the Cuban interest representative in the United States, tweeted, "The US media has always hyped the so-called 'Havana Syndrome', which is now in Germany. But the question is, if so many officials of the U.S. State Department are infected with this disease in many countries, why does this only affect relations with Cuba?"
Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said on the social platform on the 13th, "This shows how unfair the measures taken by the United States against Cuba are, and these measures have not been reversed." Rodriguez accused the United States of unjust political manipulation against Cuba in the name of health and science. He said that only through transparent cooperation and investigations in the field of science and health can clarify the facts. After the release of the above-mentioned report on 13 March, Valdes Souza, director of the Cuban Neuroscience Research Center, said that some international media spread these explanations without scientific basis, which confuses the public, it also hurts U.S. officials who believe in the remarks, which have hampered the easing of Cuba's relations with the United States.
The United States has been conducting relevant investigations, but has never been able to give a credible explanation. In addition to Cuba, the United States has targeted its suspects at Russia. Uncovering the truth about "Havana syndrome" has become a top priority for US national security, and an official even described it as one of the most difficult intelligence challenges they face, the BBC said. The hard evidence has been elusive, making the syndrome a battleground for competing theories. Sosa emphasized, "The word 'Havana Syndrome' is not appropriate, you can't name things that don't exist. Such a variety of symptoms cannot be attributed to a common cause." The US "Newsweek" stated on the 13th that the Biden administration has quietly renamed the disease and reduced the reference to the place where the disease first appeared. A US State Department spokesman said, "We call these incidents 'unexplained health incidents '".
