US fears of 'mystery weapon' revived by new China…

U.S. evacuates China staffers as illness mystery deepens

The China incidents affect one of the most important of the seven US diplomatic outposts in the country.

"The State Department received medical confirmation that a US government employee in China suffered a medical incident consistent with what other USA government personnel experienced in Havana, Cuba", the statement said, reiterating comments made last month by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Nauert also said that remaining USA government personnel and their families in Guangzhou would also be able to request testing if they "noted concerning symptoms or wanted baseline screening". The United States has said it doesn't know who is behind it, but has argued Cuba is responsible for protecting all diplomats on its soil.

China earlier said it had looked into the case announced last month but came up with no clues about the cause of the symptoms.

According to the Secretary of State, the government employee has "very similar" medical assessments "completely consistent" with those experienced by US diplomats while working in Havana, Cuba.

Those affected have suffered a range of symptoms including hearing loss, dizziness, fatigue, cognitive issues and sleep loss. "Instead, move to a different location".

The State Department has sent a medical team to China to offer medical screenings to all American government workers and family members who want them.

The State Department is taking the most recent reports in China very seriously and alerted staff in the country after consulate staffers fell ill in the city of Guangzhou in May, according to Politico.

The issue of the alleged health problems reported by diplomats in Cuba was the argument used by the government of Donald Trump to drastically reduce the personnel in the respective embassies in Havana and Washington, trying to derail the possibility of improvement in bilateral relations. It is also the only USA diplomatic installation in China authorized to process immigrant visas and handle adoptions.
