Engel, Royce urge CDC, NIH to investigate alleged sonic attacks against U.S personnel in Cuba

(PRESS RELEASE) – Representative Eliot L. Engel (D-NY), Ranking Member of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, and Representative Ed Royce (R-CA), Chairman of the House Committee on Foreign Affairs, sent a letter to Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Brenda Fitzgerald and National Institutes of Health (NIH) Director Francis Collins urging them to take a leading role in the investigation into the cause and medical effects of the alleged sonic attacks that have targeted 24 personnel working at the U.S. Embassy in Havana, Cuba.

The Members wrote: “We need to use all available resources to discover the medical cause and impact of what happened to our embassy personnel in Cuba. As noted in your mission statements, ‘CDC saves lives and protects people from health threats’ and NIH applies ‘knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability.’ Your expertise is needed now more than ever in determining what precisely happened to U.S. personnel in Cuba.”
