Mysterious neurological symptoms suffered by American spies and diplomats in Cuba and China – dubbed ‘Havana Syndrome’ – could be the result of a microwave energy weapon, says new report
The mysterious symptoms American spies and diplomats in Cuba and China have suffered could be due to a directed microwave energy, says a new report by the National Academies of Sciences
The new report, which has been obtained by NBC News, does not explicitly say that the microwaves were deployed intentionally as a weapon, but does not rule that possibility out.
Medical and scientific experts from the Academies of Sciences studied 40 State Department employees and noted that no similar symptoms had previously been recorded in medical literature.

The employees suffered loud sounds and the feeling of pressure in their heads, dizziness and visual distress. For some the symptoms have been ongoing.
‘The committee felt that many of the distinctive and acute signs, symptoms and observations reported by (government) employees are consistent with the effects of directed, pulsed radio frequency (RF) energy,’ the report says
