Another possible sonic attack.

This time it happened in the Chinese city of Guangzhou.

BEIJING — The U.S. State Department is warning U.S. citizens in China that a government employee reported unusual “sensations of sound and pressure” and was later diagnosed with a mild traumatic brain injury — a case that recalls a wave of so-called “sonic attacks” on U.S. diplomats in Cuba.

There was a health alert sent saying a U.S. government employee reported “subtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressure.”

The notification said the department was not aware of any other cases inside or outside the diplomatic community.

Though the State Department has not linked this case to any other incident, news of unusual symptoms hitting U.S. government employees abroad will no doubt draw comparison to a rash of incidents with U.S. and Canadian diplomats working in Cuba.

The U.S. last year decided to withdraw a large number of embassy staff from the country after diplomats stationed there complained of symptoms like hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, visual difficulties, headaches and fatigue.

The American Foreign Service Association said then that government employees had been diagnosed with “mild traumatic brain injury and permanent hearing loss, with such additional symptoms as loss of balance, severe headaches, cognitive disruption, and brain swelling.”

Bolding above are mine.

Details about the Guangzhou case are still emerging. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy in Beijing said that from late 2017 to April 2018, a government employee assigned to Guangzhou reported a variety of physical symptoms.

The employee was sent to the United States for evaluation and treatment. On May 18, the embassy learned that the diagnosis was mild traumatic brain injury.

The spokeswoman, Jinnie Lee, said the department is taking the incident “very seriously.”

“The Chinese government has assured us they are also investigating and taking appropriate measures,” she said.

The health alert advised that U.S. citizens in China should consult a medical professional if they experience any symptoms.

“While in China, if you experience any unusual acute auditory or sensory phenomena accompanied by unusual sounds or piercing noises, do not attempt to locate their source,” the alert advised.

“Instead, move to a location where the sounds are not present.”

Creepy as hell, huh?

Mankind has entered a new epoch, where we can be walking down the street and get attacked by EM weapons, laser weapons, sonic weapons, etc.

It makes you wonder who have access to this technology and what are they using it for?

There’s still no information about the Cuba incident, I don’t think this one will be any different.
