Another case of “Havana Syndrome” was reported in Serbia, causing a CIA officer to be evacuated from the country.

According to The Wall Street Journal, this is the latest among a series of cases of the mysterious illness that has plagued CIA officials over the last few months. 

Symptoms of the illness include dizziness, constant ringing in the ears, nausea, and in severe cases, memory loss.

The cause of Havana Syndrome still remains a mystery to government officials, but some believe it is caused by an unknown energy weapon that is being used against diplomats abroad. 

According to Fox News, the State Department is becoming more concerned over the “expansion of cases” among the diplomatic population. 

Just a week ago, Vienna's CIA bureau chief was removed from his post and recalled to the U.S. due to his alleged disregard of over a dozen cases of the strange syndrome. The bureau chief had expressed skepticism to the Biden administration over whether the cases were in fact real, and not imagined. 

According to The Hill, a doctor has been appointed to investigate this recent string of cases among CIA officers. 

So far the culprit behind the attacks remains unknown.
