President Biden recently signed a law that will help American “Havana Syndrome” victims. Good thing because new cases continue being reported.
Havana Syndrome Cases Hit Ahead of Blinken’s Visit
Ailments surface in Colombia
(Newser) – US officials are investigating suspected cases of Havana syndrome at the US embassy in Colombia, where Secretary of State Antony Blinken is to travel next week, days after similar reports surfaced at the US embassy in Germany. Emails from US Ambassador to Colombia Philip Goldberg describe a number of “unexplained health incidents” at the embassy in Bogota since mid-September, the Wall Street Journal reports, noting a minor is among those affected. More than a dozen embassy employees and their family members have reported symptoms—which can range from headache to brain injury—including some who had to be flown out of Colombia, CNN reports. A source tells the outlet that a few of those officials previously suffered symptoms while working in other countries.
“Some of the families are living in hotels as the embassy runs tests on their apartments,” per the Journal. Colombian President Iván Duque tells the New York Times that the country is investigating alongside the US. An investigation is also underway in Berlin, where reports of Havana syndrome cases surfaced Friday, per the BBC. President Biden vowed to find “the cause and who is responsible” hours after signing the HAVANA Act, which will provide financial compensation and other support for US victims around the world. More than 200 have been affected since the first known cases surfaced at the US embassy in Cuba in 2016. Biden said Friday that addressing the incidents is “a top priority for my administration,” per CNN. The Times reports Blinken’s trip will go ahead as planned. (Read more Havana syndrome stories.)
Americans experiencing “Havana Syndrome” symptoms have been reported for many years and seem to be increasing (see 1, 2, 3). Nevertheless, earlier this month a neurology professor proclaimed that that reports are nothing but “mass hysteria” despite the syndrome’s cause (exposure to microwave energy) having already been identified by medical experts (see 1, 2, 3, 4, 5).
Of course, common wireless devices and infrastructure also emit harmful electromagnetic radiation (aka “Electrosmog”) and exposure can cause symptoms, illnesses, and injuries similar to what are being experienced by “Havana Syndrome” victims (see 1, 2). This is referred to as Microwave Sickness, Radiation Sickness, Electromagnetic Sensitivity (ES) and/or Electromagnetic Hypersensivity (EHS). Sources include activity trackers and other wearables, cell phones, cell towers (see 1, 2) utility “Smart” Meters, Wi-Fi, 5G, and more. Only time will tell if Biden will sign a law to help these exposure victims too.
