Cuba's foreign ministry said Sunday that it has not uncovered the cause of mysterious health symptoms that affected an official of the U.S. embassy in Havana last month and characterized the United States' decision to withdraw personnel posted there as "politically motivated".

US experts have yet to determine who or what is behind the mysterious illnesses.

The foreign ministry issued a statement with limited new details about the case, in which an employee at the US embassy reported having "health symptoms" hearing sounds in her home two days before.

Cuban investigators were sent to the home, but did not find the possible source of a sound and were not granted access to the USA official. Dr. Marc Siegel provides insight into the illness.

The individuals in the "potentially new cases" of a mystery illness that has plagued embassy employees have undergone medical evaluations and were not yet "medically confirmed", the official said.

USA officials have detailed how personnel in Cuba came to experience a variety of symptoms including sharp ear pain, headaches, ringing in one ear, vertigo, disorientation, attention issues and signs consistent with mild traumatic brain injury or concussion.

Un texte qui ne réglait pas le conflit en cours, mais qui était considéré comme un pas vers la désescalade et le dialogue. Une nouvelle étape donc vient d'être franchie dans la tension entre le président Donald Trump et ses alliés.

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

Two other officials said the individuals had been brought for testing to the University of Pennsylvania, where doctors have been evaluating, treating and studying Americans affected in Cuba past year as well as nearly 10 new possible cases from a USA consulate in China.

The officials weren't authorised to comment publicly and requested anonymity.

If confirmed by doctors to have the same condition, the two individuals would mark the 25th and 26th confirmed patients from the weird incidents in Cuba that were first disclosed previous year and have been deemed "specific attacks" by the US government. Cuba has denied any involvement in or knowledge of what may have caused the injuries.

"The Ministry of Foreign Relations reiterates that no evidence of the alleged incidents has been presented, and maintains its unwavering commitment to cooperate with USA authorities", Cuba said in a statement. "The Ministry of Foreign Relations reiterates that no evidence of the alleged incidents has been presented, and maintains its unwavering commitment to cooperate with United States authorities".
