'Havana syndrome'-like mystery illness affects Vienna US diplomats

York, England
The US government is investigating a series of health incidents in the Austrian capital Vienna involving its diplomats and other administration staff.
More than 20 officials have reported symptoms similar to Havana Syndrome - a mystery brain illness - since President Joe Biden took office in January.
The syndrome is unexplained, but US scientists say it is most probably caused by directed microwave radiation.
It was first found in Cuba in 2016-17.
US and Canadian diplomats in Havana complained of symptoms ranging from dizziness, loss of balance, hearing loss and anxiety to something they described as "cognitive fog".

Yes @Treeman, this has been reported in a few countries. Some people are affected much worse than others and the usual suspects have been thought to be behind it. Sorry, but threats don't seem to be enough for this crowd.

Who knows what's going on? A new form of warfare, perhaps? Young adults (read that as juvenile) just trying things out?.....but as of now there is no proof of who/what is behind it. Thanks for sending in another source of disabled people. Yours, Lenora.
