State Department officials said that a medical team flown into China is testing other employees and their family members for related symptoms.

The illness resembles a brain injury and has already affected United States personnel in Cuba, its spokeswoman said on Wednesday. Ten Canadian diplomats and their relatives also suffered a odd illness. The US government has deemed those incidents "specific attacks" on American workers but hasn't publicly identified a cause or culprit.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo released a statement on Tuesday saying the department established a task force last month "to direct a multi-agency response to the unexplained health incidents".

Early tests showed that the American worker in China had similar medical results to someone who has experienced a mild traumatic brain injury or concussion.

"Reported symptoms have included dizziness, headaches, tinnitus, fatigue, cognitive issues, visual problems, ear complaints and hearing loss, and difficulty sleeping", the statement said.
