More Consulate Workers Evacuated After Mystery Illness Strikes Americans In China
Jun 08, 2018, 06:54
A USA medical team was screening Americans who work in a southern Chinese city as the State Department confirmed evacuating a number of government workers who experienced unexplained health issues like those that have hurt U.S. personnel in Cuba. The embassy provided no details regarding the location of the incident, but included contacts of the US Consulate General in the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou.
The New York Times reported that the State Department had evacuated at least two Americans who fell ill after hearing odd noises in China. "As a result of the screening process so far, the department has sent a number of individuals for further evaluation and a comprehensive assessment of their symptoms and findings in the United States".
A USA official, who wasn't authorized to discuss the situation publicly and requested anonymity, said the evacuated American government workers were being brought from China for testing to the University of Pennsylvania. Starting in 2016, USA representatives in Cuba experienced hearing loss and and other cognitive problems usually associated with concussions and other trauma to the head.
The evacuation of the USA diplomats with mysterious illness comes at a time when the relations between Beijing and Washington were going through a tense phase as the two countries grappled to avert a trade war.
