December 3, 2018
(The Washington Post) – Last week, another Canadian diplomat was diagnosed with a mysterious disease so weird it’s been referred to in some circles as “the thing.” The illness afflicts only government employees from the United States and Canada. Sufferers report feeling pulsing or hearing a ringing in their ears. Then headaches, dizziness, trouble concentrating and struggles to remember basic words and facts. Diplomats have been complaining about “Havana syndrome,” named for the city where nearly all the victims were based, for two years.
