US Embassy in China sends new alert for mystery health issue

China says it has no information about the incident's cause.

It also advised any U.S. citizen, or their family members, who experience "any unusual, unexplained physical symptoms or events, auditory or sensory phenomena, or other health concerns" to contact their doctor. Initially, the US investigators suspected a sonic attack after people complained of freaky, unexplained sounds.

The case revived fears that a USA rival has developed some kind of acoustic or microwave device after similar symptoms were reported among American diplomats and their families in Cuba in 2016.

The employees reported hearing loud, grating noises before experiencing hearing loss, dizziness, headache, fatigue, cognitive issues and difficulty sleeping.

The State Department, which reported the latest medical evacuations on Wednesday, has not accused any particular country or organisation of being behind the latest incidents.

She said the tests were offered to "any personnel who have noted concerning symptoms or wanted baseline screening".

On Wednesday the U.S. government said that it had brought a group of people from that consulate back to the United States for further evaluation of their symptoms, and that it was offering screening to anyone at the U.S. Embassy in Beijing or other consulates in China who requested it.

In October, the U.S. State Department ordered non-essential embassy workers and their families to evacuate Havana out of concern the mysterious illness was the result of a targeted sonic attack.

As soon as the department received medical confirmation that one USA government employee had suffered a "medical incident that was consistent with what American personnel in Havana, Cuba, had experienced", officials deployed a medical team to Guangzhou, China, to screen all US employees and family members who requested it, she said. One U.S. government employee in China was recently confirmed as suffering from similar symptoms.

Rafael Nadal has been full of focus at Roland Garros . "He is very photogenic, for me he is the one to photograph", she said. Later, 23-time Grand Slam champion Serena Williams will face five-time major victor Maria Sharapova on the same court.

The symptoms were similar to those found in the case of U.S. diplomatic personnel who worked in Cuba, including mild traumatic brain injury.

The U.S. State Department expanded a health alert Friday for American staffers in China, about two days after it evacuated diplomats and relatives over a mysterious acoustic illness.

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

The Penn team said the patients from Cuba experienced persistent disability though rehabilitation therapy customized for them seemed to help.

"The Health Incidents Response Task Force serves as the coordinating body for Department and interagency activities, including identification and treatment of affected personnel and family members, investigation and risk mitigation, messaging, and diplomatic outreach", Pompeo's statement debuting the task force read.

The China incidents have an effect on some of the vital of the seven US diplomatic outposts within the nation. The Guangzhou consulate opened months after the establishment of diplomatic relations between Beijing and Washington in 1979 and moved to its new purpose-built facility in 2013.

People working in The Canton Place complex, a few miles from the consulate, said they were just hearing about the incidents, reflecting a lack of coverage in China's entirely state-controlled media.

Aled Williams, a British teacher at a kindergarten said Thursday that the reports sounded "sci-fi-ish". "However I do not really feel that there is one thing to be very afraid of as a result of it is most likely a really particular case", Chen mentioned.
