The United States has evacuated government workers out of the southern Chinese city of Guangzhou after medical testing revealed they might have been affected by unexplained health incidents that have already hurt U.S. personnel in Cuba, the State Department said Wednesday.
The US state department said several government employees working in Guangzhou had been sent back to the US to be evaluated.
"As a result of the screening process so far, the department has sent a number of individuals for further evaluation and a comprehensive assessment of their symptoms and findings in the United States", Nauert said.
"If there's really a problem then the US side can directly contact the Chinese side and communicate, and China will continue to conscientiously investigate and coordinate with a responsible attitude", Hua said.
On May 23, the State Department issued a health alert after a US government employee reported "subtle and vague, but abnormal, sensations of sound and pressure".
Last year, 24 US government employees and family members in Cuba displayed the symptoms, which were similar to those related to concussion and mild traumatic brain injury, according to the State Department.

Some of the injuries, which also affected 10 Canadian diplomats and their families, resembled brain trauma.
