State Department warns U.S. citizens in China after employee suffers possible sonic attack

Another possible sonic attack.

This time it happened in the Chinese city of Guangzhou.



BEIJING — The U.S. State Department is warning U.S. citizens in China that a government employee reported unusual “sensations of sound and pressure” and was later diagnosed with a mild traumatic brain injury — a case that recalls a wave of so-called “sonic attacks” on U.S. diplomats in Cuba.


There was a health alert sent saying a U.S. government employee reported “subtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressure.”

The notification said the department was not aware of any other cases inside or outside the diplomatic community.


Though the State Department has not linked this case to any other incident, news of unusual symptoms hitting U.S. government employees abroad will no doubt draw comparison to a rash of incidents with U.S. and Canadian diplomats working in Cuba.

The U.S. last year decided to withdraw a large number of embassy staff from the country after diplomats stationed there complained of symptoms like hearing loss, dizziness, tinnitus, visual difficulties, headaches and fatigue.



The American Foreign Service Association said then that government employees had been diagnosed with “mild traumatic brain injury and permanent hearing loss, with such additional symptoms as loss of balance, severe headaches, cognitive disruption, and brain swelling.”


Bolding above are mine.


Details about the Guangzhou case are still emerging. A spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy in Beijing said that from late 2017 to April 2018, a government employee assigned to Guangzhou reported a variety of physical symptoms.

The employee was sent to the United States for evaluation and treatment. On May 18, the embassy learned that the diagnosis was mild traumatic brain injury.



The spokeswoman, Jinnie Lee, said the department is taking the incident “very seriously.”

“The Chinese government has assured us they are also investigating and taking appropriate measures,” she said.

The health alert advised that U.S. citizens in China should consult a medical professional if they experience any symptoms.

“While in China, if you experience any unusual acute auditory or sensory phenomena accompanied by unusual sounds or piercing noises, do not attempt to locate their source,” the alert advised.

“Instead, move to a location where the sounds are not present.”


Creepy as hell, huh?

Mankind has entered a new epoch, where we can be walking down the street and get attacked by EM weapons, laser weapons, sonic weapons, etc.

It makes you wonder who have access to this technology and what are they using it for?

There's still no information about the Cuba incident, I don't think this one will be any different.

Wow they kept that deep under wraps. I live here in Guangzhou and didn't hear a thing about it before now.

I'll have to dig around through some contacts and see what comes up.

Thanks for the post!

Feel free to add more information to this thread if you get some.

I'd like to know where he was when the attack happened.

If it was an isolated case, and if so, who is this guy, or if more people suffered it too.

Weren't there similar attacks in US embassies, in other countries as well? Or just in China?

Paint me as ignorant, but I don't feel that the Chinese government would want to do this. If there were any way to trace back to where it came from, I don't think the US would take too kindly to US citizens being attacked by Chinese gov.

I would lean more towards the possibility of agent provocateurs trying to stir up tensions

That is my thought as well.

It seems like someone is trying to create more tensions... These people just want war.

There was an attack in Cuba by the end of last year which remains unexplainable.

In which way?

Can you elaborate on that?

Someone wants to provoke the US into starting problems, they have to try harder than a random sonic weapon attack.

Whoever is doing it must be probing the reactions before trying a larger target or group of us workers.

A theory I made up

Cuba and now China. Very interesting.

"Initially, investigators suspected some kind of sonic attack. But they found little evidence of that. And scientists say acoustic waves have never been shown to alter the way the brain works. There has been suspicion that the ailment is something like a mass hysteria. But doctors say the changes to the brain that they see rule that out. They suspect it is a medical condition, though environmental assessments have yielded few clues."

Fake article. They are all snorting coke.

Case closed.

Can't say I haven't thought about this as well.

Someone is trying to trigger an reaction. I'll wait for more details to emerge before jumping to a conspiracy theory.

Won't rule them out tho.

Also, some interesting articles I found about the Cuba case:

No. Not even close to "closed."

"Sound waves don't affect the way the brain works" has got to be the dumbest thing I have read in a while. Seriously, think about that statement. I don't even need to go into detail why that statement is so patently false that it kind of irks me.

For example, the LRAD is a deployed and proven effective acoustic device that affects people not only neurologically, but physiologically too.

I know quite a bit about food chemistry and some chemistry that other cultures eat regularly can cause circulation and nervous system problems if you change your diet too quickly or wind up consuming something high in the chemistry. It can make a person more susceptable to lots of things. Add to that some strong frequency from something and you could have problems.

It is a combination of things that can disrupt things. the ducks have to be all in a row. Genetics and gene expression can be involved, enzymes could definitely be involved in setting the stage.

The frequency could have come from lots of stuff, even a factory or some radio transmission. Some other country could have a satelite in space that could target an area with a strong transmission. I can't even say China is involved, it could be anything. It can and does happen here too, we just don't realize it. Certain frequencies made by a thunderstorm could effect someone's brain abnormally, has anyone had their hair stand straight up during a thunder storm? I have many times over the years.

I don't know where this individual was who suffered the attack(s) but can say this -

There are few factories within Guangzhou's main metro area. The few there are don't emit noise or anything. Surrounding Guangzhou or in Foshan there are lots of factories.

Western food is easily available all over Guangzhou, it has been quite a melting pot here for centuries. I doubt his dietary change elicited this reaction. Though it does cause us to have a certain reaction in the bathroom on occasion.

This attack must have been at this person's home because the US Embassy in Guangzhou is smack in the middle of downtown in a very upscale area surrounded by businesses, high end shopping malls and apartments. I don't see how this couldn't have affected others based on the reading I've done about Cuba since that story broke last year.

Thank you for your valuable information!

Good thing we have an insider source since there's almost nothing in the media about this

If it's an populated area and he was the only one affected maybe they were targeting him?

Now we need to find out who is this guy.

Massive police state expansion, Facial recognition software en masse, 5G testing, sonic weaponry and probably much more to come.

With over a billion people to play with, it's a perfect testbed.

Don't forget the social scoring system that just got 11.8 million flight tickets denied and 4.8 million train tickets canceled.

The list of offenses for which one can have a negative social score and get denied tickets is -

Speaking out against social order (government)
Writing improper or incorrect words about the society (government)
Spreading false rumors on social media
Being a blogger, journalist, vlogger who comments on the government or human rights
Bad behavior on airplanes, buses and trains (this was needed, I agree with it)

We don't truly know the reasons as you can never find out. Being that China is rule by man and not law we could also add -

Pissing off a government official
Pissing off the friend or family member of a government official
Being reported as a foreign spy (which is now widely encouraged especially in the north!)
Or just coz

This is the most Orwellian thing ever deployed in history.

Ricky, you need to come indoors when those lightening strikes get close!

But, it is exciting outside during a thunder storm, the air smells good and the lightning is really cool. I learned not to throw pennies around the house so they grow into the grass, lots of spider lightning occurred when I did that.
