The State Department has issued a warning to all Americans who travel to Castrogonia.

This Health Alert contains a link to the JAMA article, and all travelers are advised to read it.

The message: If it happened to diplomats, watch out, it could happen to you too.

This is the second such alert issued by the State Department.

A much more detailed warning was issued in late September 2017.

From the U.S. Embassy in Havana:

Event:  The Department of State’s Travel Advisory for Cuba details how numerous U.S. government  employees appear to have been targeted in specific attacks, and that many of those employees suffered injuries as a consequence of these attacks.

On February 14, 2018, the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) published an article written by independent medical personnel involved in the evaluation and treatment of these injuries.

Actions to Take:

Discuss the JAMA article with a doctor if you have concerns prior to travel.

Consult with a doctor if you are concerned about symptoms you experienced either during or after your visit to Cuba.
