Havana syndrome met for the first time in 2016 when US and Canadian diplomats and their families residing in Cuba reported headaches, nausea, dizziness, fatigue, drowsiness, vision and hearing problems.
Following these events on the island, the United States classified the Syndrome as a “Additional abnormal health incident” and these cases have continued to add mainly US intelligence officials which are in China, Austria or Russia.
What Causes the Syndrome?
Since its first report it has sought to explain what is the cause of these symptoms. Mainly it has been estimated that these pains occur when they are targeted microwave weapons that emit pulses of energy from radio frequency diplomatic workers.
Another possible explanation has been the use of sound weapons since some of those affected by the Havana syndrome assured that they heard a “piercing sound” before beginning to feel symptoms.
Still, for the moment the cause of the syndrome has not been defined Despite the fact that the symptoms have been indicated to be similar to those of a severe concussion since symptoms such as balance problems and cognitive and sensory abilities are affected.
