Cuba: No Explanation for Latest U.S. Employee's Illness

U.S. evacuates China staffers as illness mystery deepens

The US embassy's latest health alert, the second in two weeks, said that following voluntary medical screenings, the State Department "has sent other individuals to the United States for further evaluation". The U.S.is also examining new potential cases from a U.S. consulate in China. China says it has uncovered no information that could point to a cause.

In a statement, the Cuban ministry said officials launched an investigation after learning an employee had "reported health symptoms as a result of "undefined sound" in her place of residence".

The State Department said on Friday the cases were similar to those of 24 diplomats and family members taken ill through 2017, leading to a drawdown of personnel in Havana to a skeleton staff and the expulsion of 17 Cuban diplomats from Washington.

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