Canadian diplomat in Cuba treated for hearing loss

Canadian diplomat in Cuba treated for hearing loss”

U.S. authorities have said that they do not have the permission to speak publically about what's happening, but the Associated Press explains that the symptoms of the mystery illness have in some cases been severe enough that the diplomats have had to return to the United States to recover. "The government is actively working, including with USA and Cuban authorities, to ascertain the cause". Like virtually all foreign diplomats in Cuba, the victims of the incidents lived in housing owned and maintained by the Cuban government.

"We consider these to be incidents because we are still trying to determine the actual cause of their situation". "I went down there and I really gave them hell".

When it comes to sound, the human body can be very fragile outside a narrow range. She said that they could not go into details about the health of United States citizens due to department policy, but that no one's lives were at risk as a result of the incident that occurred.

Horowitz explained that infrasonic machines at a very high amplitude can cause nausea, ultrasonics have no effect on hearing, and long-range acoustic devices or sound canons are "extremely noticeable and easy to move away from". Kill enough of them, and your ability to hear is diminished.

While the harm caused by most acoustic weapons is minimal, some experts said they are not aware of what kind of sound may have caused those symptoms. "As a result of this, we invited two Cuban officials to leave the United States and they have already", US Department of State spokeswoman, Heather Nauert, affirmed. Some victims left Havana to receive medical treatment.

"Cuba has never permitted, nor will permit, that Cuban territory be used for any action against accredited diplomatic officials or their families, with no exception".

One of the worst-performing developing-country funds today is the Herzfeld Caribben Basin Fund (CUBA) after USA and Canadian officials confirmed they are investigating "bizarre incidents" and health symptoms experienced in late 2016 among diplomats who were stationed in the country. But Cuba's Foreign Ministry sent out a statement saying the highest levels of its government had ordered an investigation.

It said the decision to expel two Cuban diplomats was "unjustified and baseless".

Nauert would not comment on the Canadian statement. Americans serving in Cuba had returned to the US for non life-threatening "medical reasons".

Investigators are trying to determine whether Cuba "placed sonic devices that produce non-audible sound inside or outside the residences of roughly five United States embassy staffers with the intent of deafening them", The Guardian says. Americans previously served at a diplomatic office that did not carry full embassy status, and Cubans did the same in Washington.
