Cuba released details Sunday on the latest mysterious health incident involving a U.S. diplomat in the country saying officials learned of the episode late May 2018 when the U.S. said an embassy official felt ill after hearing'undefined sounds in her

Cuba's Foreign Ministry revealed it was informed by the USA that on May 29 a female worker reported experiencing health symptoms, after hearing undefined sounds in her home two days earlier, in a statement released Sunday.

Cuban authorities on Sunday said they remained baffled by a mystery ailment that has afflicted numerous United States diplomats on the island, with the latest case reported last month.

Cuba's Foreign Ministry said Sunday it learned of the latest health incident involving a USA diplomat in the country late last month, but found no evidence of what may have caused the woman's symptoms.

Cuba said that it sent investigators to the home and that they found no potential source of a sound.

More than 20 US officials posted in Havana have suffered injuries consistent with brain injury, which the US State Department has said could have been the result of a "health attack", from an unidentified secret weapon, possibly an acoustic or microwave device.

"After more than a year of investigation led by specialized agencies and Cuban and United States experts, we can confirm that we have no credible hypothesis or scientific explanation that justifies the retaliatory United States measures", the foreign ministry said in a statement.

The State Department said on Friday the cases were similar to those of 24 diplomats and family members taken ill through 2017, leading to a drawdown of personnel in Havana to a skeleton staff and the expulsion of 17 Cuban diplomats from Washington. The U.S.is also examining new potential cases from a U.S. consulate in China.

"Cuba has publicly and officially reiterated its willingness to cooperate seriously in the joint search for answers, clarity and the solution of the alleged facts", the Cuban statement said on Sunday.

The officials were not authorized to comment publicly and requested anonymity.

If confirmed by doctors to have the same condition, the two individuals would be the 25th and 26th confirmed patients from the freaky incidents in Cuba that were first disclosed past year and have been deemed "specific attacks" by the USA government. The United States has said it doesn't know who is behind it, but has argued Cuba is responsible for protecting all diplomats on its soil. Cuba has denied any involvement in or knowledge of what may have caused the injuries.

The US has being issuing health alerts to Americans in China after a worker at the US consulate in Guangzhou reported symptoms and unusual sounds and was flown to the US. That worker was then confirmed to have "suffered a medical incident consistent with what other USA government personnel experienced in Havana, Cuba", the State Department has said.
