Was it "Havana syndrome?"

Anomalous Health Incidents

A suspected new case of the mysterious “Havana syndrome” has reportedly delayed US vice president Kamala Harris’ visit to Vietnam, ABC News reports.

According to a statement by the US embassy in Hanoi, an “anomalous health incident” is the first to involve a senior US leader, according to ABC.

While we don’t have a direct confirmation that the incident has any direct ties to other mysterious symptoms experienced by many other US officials over the last couple of years, it’s not exactly a stretch. US officials are investigating 130 possible cases, ABC reports — but they have yet to find a cause.

In fact, federal agencies announced earlier this year they were investigating at least two possible “directed energy attack” incidents on US soil, one of which reportedly occurred near the White House.

Screeching Sounds

Havana syndrome was first reported by US diplomats stationed at the embassy in Havana, Cuba in late 2016. Officials reported they were suffering from nausea and fatigue. Some even experienced hearing loss after reportedly hearing extremely loud screeching sounds.

The strange incidents have led some to believe that US adversaries were using sonic weapons or even microwaves, but there has yet to be any definitive proof of foul play.

A number of US intelligence agencies including the CIA as well as the Pentagon are investigating the mysterious symptoms.

Harris’ trip was only delayed by three hours. “After careful assessment, the decision was made to continue with the Vice President’s trip,” the statement reads.

Harris’s spokesperson Symone Sanders also confirmed to reporters that Harris is “well,” according to ABC.

“All is fine,” she added.
