Havana Syndrome Attacks Outside of Cuba

Recent Attack in Washington D.C. - A senior White House official on the National Security Council had recently returned from a work trip abroad. He was sitting in his office across from the West Wing and at the end of the day he left work and headed toward his car, which was parked between the White House and the Washington Monument. The individual suddenly began hearing a ringing in his ears, his body went completely numb, and he had trouble controlling his legs and fingers. He had difficulty forming words and fell to the ground before he reached his car. Eventually, he was able to get up and call a Lyft driver to take him to the nearest ER.

The doctor on call immediately asked the individual if he was on drugs. Still unable to speak, he shook his head “no.”  A stroke was the initial thought, but an MRI ruled it out. Bloodwork turned up nothing unusual. The individual, who was in his mid-thirties had no preexisting conditions and, eventually, the doctors diagnosed him with a “massive migraine,” keeping him overnight to run more tests and for observation. Days later the individual still had a severe headache but decided to return to work. Days later, the individual received a phone call from a colleague who suggested he look into Havana Syndrome.

One Agent Targeted for a Second Attack - One of the CIA agents that had experienced a prior Havana Syndrome attack in London was walking her dog in Virginia years later. She noticed an SUV parked near her house and felt that a man on the other side of the street was following her. As she neared the man, she felt an intense pain in her head—so intense, it caused her to double over. She also heard a sharp, high-pitched ringing noise that she believed was different from the sound she heard in London. A friend who was walking with the agent at the time also heard the sound and felt the pressure. Another agent visited doctors who found scar tissue and damage to the ear, along with hearing loss. Many of those with Havana Syndrome have ringing in their ears, pressure changes, frequent migraines, nausea, and vertigo. These individuals deserve help following an attack that altered their lives.

Attacks Spreading Internationally - Following the initial attack in Cuba, there was an incident involving a CIA agent in Moscow who woke up with severe vertigo and other symptoms related to Havana Syndrome. Eventually, it was discovered that what began in Havana with a few dozen U.S. spies and diplomats soon mushroomed into more than 130 cases in China, Austria, Colombia, Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Cuba, the United States, and other areas as well.
