Earlier this summer the State Department started referring American “Havana Syndrome” victims to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the Senate passed a bill to help them. Reports of people experiencing symptoms continue to make headlines (see 1, 2). Now the House has passed a bill to help victims.
From NBC News:
House passes bill to help diplomats, officials hit with Havana Syndrome
WASHINGTON — A long-delayed bill to provide financial support to U.S. government personnel believed to be suffering from Havana Syndrome is headed to President Joe Biden’s desk after the House passed it Tuesday.
The Helping American Victims Afflicted by Neurological Attacks Act, or HAVANA Act, is one of the most significant pieces of legislation passed to date to address the mysterious health incidents that have affected U.S. diplomats, spies and other workers since at least 2016, which remain unsolved. It would allow the federal government to pay those with brain injuries.
The Senate passed the bill June 7, and it faced multiple delays in the House. Although the White House has not said explicitly whether Biden will sign it, he has supported additional efforts to investigate Havana Syndrome’s cause and origins and to provide more support to Americans dealing with it.
Sen. Susan Collins, R-Maine, who helped craft the bipartisan bill, said she had spoken with some of the victims of what she said were “heinous attacks.”
“Far too many Havana Syndrome victims have had to battle the bureaucracy to receive care for their debilitating injuries,” said Collins, who wrote the bill with Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, D-N.H., and the leaders of the Senate Intelligence Committee, Democrat Mark Warner of Virginia and Republican Marco Rubio of Florida.
In a statement provided to NBC News, a group of U.S. government employees who have reported Havana Syndrome incidents said they were grateful to Congress for its unanimous support and urged Biden to sign it swiftly.
Of course common personal wireless devices and infrastructure also emit high levels of harmful electromagnetic radiation (aka “Electrosmog”) which can cause symptoms, illnesses, and injuries as well (see 1, 2). This is referred to as Microwave Sickness, Radiation Sickness, Electromagnetic Sensitivity (ES) and/or Electromagnetic Hypersensivity (EHS). Sources of exposure include activity trackers, cell phones, cell towers (see 1, 2) utility “Smart” Meters, Wi-Fi, 5G, and much more.
