A Timeline of Havana Syndrome Energy Attacks

Thank you to everyone for your overwhelming support of this litigation. Right now, we can ONLY accept cases from attacks that occurred in Cuba. We are still continuing our investigation into these attacks.

A Timeline for “Havana Syndrome” Energy Attacks - Certain U.S. government personnel in Havana, Cuba first experienced symptoms of Havana Syndrome in 2016. As reported by Healthline, these symptoms included persistent neurological issues such as inner ear imbalances, vertigo, eye movement dysfunction, sleep disruption, and headaches following “directional audible and/or sensory phenomena of unclear origin.” Those affected individuals appeared to have suffered injury to widespread brain networks, “without an associated history of head trauma.” In 2017, reports finally began surfacing regarding the fact that American and Canadian diplomatic personnel in Cuba had experienced attacks and subsequent Havana Syndrome symptoms. As of June 2018, 26 American citizens had come forward regarding these incidents. Some of those individuals have experienced lasting adverse health effects. Hearing loss, memory loss, chronic headaches, and chronic nausea were increasingly reported by these individuals.

In August 2017 the U.S. expelled two Cuban diplomats in response to the attacks and illnesses, subsequently warning Americans not to travel to Cuba. In March 2018, MRI scans taken on Canadian diplomats who had also been in Havana at the same time showed evidence of brain damage. The injuries seen in these Canadian diplomats mirrored those of their American counterparts, causing Canada to end family postings to Cuba. A number of Canadians impacted by Havana Syndrome were unable to resume their work due to the severity of their symptoms. By 2019, the Canadian government significantly reduced embassy staff in Havana after another Canadian diplomat reported Havana Syndrome symptoms.

In early 2018, U.S. diplomats in China began experiencing symptoms similar to those in Havana. An American diplomat in China was in the Guangzhou consulate in April 2018. This diplomat stated he had been experiencing symptoms since late 2017. Other reports followed. The symptoms reported were very similar and entirely consistent with those reported from Cuba. By June 2018, several U.S. diplomats were removed from the Guangzhou consulate.

In 2019, a White House official reported the same type of debilitating symptoms as those who had been in Havana and China. The report came after the official walked her dog in a Virginia suburb of Washington. In November 2020, a similar incident was reported on the lawn adjacent to the White House. Both incidents closely mirrored those in Havana and China.

Over the past five years, about 130 cases of attacks have been reported. About 50 of those cases are among CIA personnel, with the remainder primarily among State Department personnel, U.S. military personnel, and their family members. Attacks have occurred in Moscow, Poland, Georgia, Taiwan, Australia, Colombia, Kyrgyzstan, Austria, Uzbekistan, Tbilisi, and, of course, Cuba and China.
