(Miami Herald) At least 16 U.S. government employees in Cuba have been treated after experiencing symptoms including hearing loss.
Employees at the U.S. Embassy in Cuba started experiencing odd medical symptoms starting in late 2016, which Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has characterized as "health attacks."
"We can confirm that at least 16 U.S. government employees, members of our embassy community, have experienced some kind of symptoms," State Department spokesperson Heather Nauert said Thursday. "They have been provided medical treatment in the United States as well as in Cuba. We take this situation extremely seriously."
