No scientific evidence to support allegations of sonic attacks

ataques sonicos reunionExtensive scientific evidence regarding alleged “sonic attacks” on U.S. diplomats in Havana refutes theories put forward by the government of this country to explain the incidents, used to fabricate false accusations against Cuba.

During a scientific event in Havana, organized by the Cuban Academy of Sciences and the country’s Neurosciences Center (CNEURO) – entitled, “Does the Havana Syndrome exist? – experts in attendance confirmed that the initial explanations were not founded on any scientific evidence.

The main objective of the international forum on the alleged health incidents that occurred in 2019 was “to arrive at the truth with a frank scientific discussion,” according to Dr. Mitchell Valdés-Sosa, CNEURO director.

Valdés-Sosa highlighted the critical and respectful nature with which the evidence was discussed “in order to reach the best conclusions” and the depth of analyses carried out.

The search for scientific truth has been obstructed the U.S. government, which has never allowed direct contact with diplomatic personnel reporting heath problems. Cuban specialists have only seen studies conducted by the universities of Pennsylvania and Miami.

During the conference, which included the participation of researchers from the United States, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and Cuba, specialists agreed that the term Havana Syndrome “is a media fabrication,” that “There is no evidence to indicate he existence of a new disease,” and that the accusations “do not stand up to serious scientific analysis.”
