The Chinese Foreign Ministry said Thursday that China would be willing to help the United States uncover the causes of the illness.

It also advised any U.S. citizen, or their family members, who experience "any unusual, unexplained physical symptoms or events, auditory or sensory phenomena, or other health concerns" to contact their doctor. "Practically all Chinese people do not believe that this country's official organizations would carry out such sonic attacks against USA diplomats".

THE United States State Department has evacuated more staff from China over fears they may have been hit by a mysterious illness that has struck other colleagues in the Asian country and Cuba.

Symptoms include dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, fatigue, cognitive issues, visual problems, ear complaints and hearing loss, as well as difficulty sleeping, the warning said.

Lenzi informed the Occasions he resided in the identical condo tower because the officer evacuated in April and suffered in current months from what he known as "neurological signs". Now, reports the New York Times, American employees of the consulate in Guangzhou, in southern China, are reporting the same symptoms.

"The medical screenings are ongoing for any personnel who have noted concerning symptoms or wanted baseline screening", State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert said on Wednesday, according to the Hill.

Officials said "a number of individuals" returned to the US for "further evaluation and a comprehensive assessment of their symptoms and findings".

The nationwide alert advises us personnel to contact a doctor if they experience unusual or unexplained physical symptoms.

GUANGZHOU, China A US medical team was screening more Americans who work at the consulate in southern China as the State Department confirmed evacuating a number of government employees who experienced unexplained health issues like those that have hurt USA personnel in Cuba and China.




China on Thursday said it has investigated the USA allegations of mysterious sound attacks on its diplomats in the city of Guangzhou and found "no clue" even as two more American diplomats were evacuated after complaining of similar phenomena.

The latest American employee evacuated from a USA consulate in China after suffering from mysterious neurological symptoms is accusing State Department officials of failing to inform him and others about another employee's similar health concerns until a month after the other staffer was evacuated.

The preliminary findings of the medical reports on the 24 individuals affected in Cuba indicated that they had sensory and memory problems similar to brain dysfunctions often associated with concussions.

"The embassy will continue to operate with the minimum personnel necessary to perform core diplomatic and consular functions, similar to the level of emergency staffing maintained during ordered departure", the State Department said in a statement.

The China incidents affect one of the most important of the seven USA diplomatic outposts in the country.

On Tuesday, Pompeo announced the creation of a task force to further scrutinize "the unexplained health incidents that have affected USA government personnel and their family members stationed overseas", according to a statement released Tuesday.

It serves four southern provinces with a combined population of more than 204 million and processes more than one million visa applications of all types annually.

Folks working in The Canton Place complicated, a couple of kilometers (miles) from the consulate, mentioned they had been simply listening to in regards to the incidents, reflecting an absence of protection in China's completely state-controlled media.

"For me I feel it's very unusual".
