On June 7, 2018, it was reported that the U.S. State Department has brought a group of U.S. diplomats home from China for observation for illness, after they reported hearing strange noises. At least one diplomat was confirmed to be suffering from a mysterious illness and another diplomat reported sickness, too. The situation is possibly related to a sound assault that previously occurred in Cuba and caused a malady resembling a brain injury. The diplomats are all being evaluated and an investigation is being conducted to see if the situation is related to the Cuba incident. Some time ago, 24 U.S. diplomats in Cuba were the victims of sinister sound weapons used in an acoustic attack. The incident in China may be unrelated, but an investigation continues. The precise nature of the injuries suffered are being analyzed.
