‘Mysterious disease’ alert at US embassy in Colombia

It was claimed that before the visit of US Secretary of State Antony Blinken to Colombia, some people working at the US Embassy in Bogota had a mysterious disease known as “Havana Syndrome”.

According to the news of the Wall Street Journal, in the letter sent by Philip Goldberg, the US Ambassador to Bogota, to the embassy employees, it was noted that the US State Department was dealing with the issue closely and sensitively.

It was stated that there are currently two known cases in the embassy, ​​and studies are ongoing to determine whether other people are also affected by the situation. On the other hand, White House Spokesperson Jen Psaki, while refraining from directly confirming the news in question, said, “We take every news that comes through inter-agency means on this matter very seriously.”

Reminding that US President Joe Biden signed the law last week to provide more medical assistance to people affected by Havana Syndrome, Psaki also underlined that all institutions are working to reach more information about the disease.
