American diplomats in Paris and Geneva in turn affected by the mysterious “Havana syndrome”


MYSTERY – According to the “Wall Street Journal”, four American diplomats working in Geneva and Paris are suffering from this neurological disease known as name of “Havana syndrome”.

Laetitia Asgarali Dumont – 2977-05-14T06: 44: 41.278+01: 000 The mystery deepens a little more . The Wall Street Journal affirmed this Thursday 13 January, that at least four diplomats would have been affected by the “Havana syndrome” in Geneva and Paris. This disease is characterized by hearing problems, headaches, loss of balance, nausea or even vision and speech disorders. This mysterious illness had affected American diplomatic personnel in the Cuban capital between 2016 and 2021.

A syndrome originally still unknown

The American daily explains that at least three Americans serving at the Geneva consulate have been affected by the syndrome. One of them was evacuated to the United States for treatment. In Paris, a suspected case has been listed. However, the newspaper does not provide any details about the incidents.

Despite its discovery in 2016, the United States has still not found to this day the cause and origin of the “Havana Syndrome”, as US Secretary of State Antony Blinken reminded us. “To this day, we don’t know exactly what happened, and we don’t know exactly who is responsible”, he told MSNBC.

Investigations still ongoing

Several theories have been put forward to explain this phenomenon, including the use of waves at low frequencies or situations of intense stress. Russia, China, and even the United States have reportedly researched microwaves for military purposes.

Antony Blinken explained that he had spoken with the Russian authorities, without progress for the moment. Moscow has dismissed accusations that it used “microwave weapons” against US missions as

“fanciful hypotheses”.

The American Secretary of State also specified having spoken with several people affected by this syndrome and who spoke to him about traumatic episodes. “There is no doubt in my mind that people have been directly and powerfully affected”, he said.

Investigations have been launched, and Antony Blinken had already committed in November 2021 to “shed light” on this phenomenon. He has appointed two senior diplomats to coordinate the State Department’s response, and ensure that anyone reporting symptoms receives appropriate medical attention.

In total, some 87 diplomats, spies, civil servants, personnel, officials and their families, have presented symptoms since 2018. Some people who have suffered from the syndrome have found themselves with dizziness and fatigue for several months.
