Last year, 24 us government employees and family members in Cuba displayed the symptoms, which were similar to those related to concussion and mild traumatic brain injury, according to the State Department.
The message urges staff and family members to contact their health care provider if they experience "any unusual, unexplained physical symptoms or events, auditory or sensory phenomena, or other health concerns". Initially, the US investigators suspected a sonic attack after people complained of freakish, unexplained sounds.
The unexplained sound ailing dozens of diplomats in Cuba may be getting worse in China - and the State Department has launched a task force to find out why. The symptoms included dizziness, nausea, headaches, hearing loss, and inability to concentrate.
She said they are being offered to "any personnel who have noted concerning symptoms or wanted baseline screening".
On Wednesday, State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said the employees were sent to the US for a "further evaluation and a comprehensive assessment of their symptoms and findings". In 2016, 24 people - all embassy workers and their families there - suffered the same symptoms at the US embassy in Havana, Cuba.
A number of U.S. personnel in China have been sent back to the U.S. for further tests after health screenings found symptoms similar to the mysterious "acoustic" illness experienced by some U.S. staffers in Cuba, according to the U.S. State Department. USA diplomats had experienced similar symptoms in Cuba, and the United States said the Americans were targets of "specific attacks" there.
The foreign ministry said it takes its obligation to protect foreign diplomats seriously and is open to conducting further investigations if requested by the U.S.

Canada in April additionally ordered households of diplomatic employees in Cuba to return residence after mysterious well being signs had been detected in 10 Canadians stationed on the island.

The China incidents have an effect on some of the vital of the seven USA diplomatic outposts within the nation.
