Two Cuban doctors in physical sciences warned about the falsehood of the accusations by the United States about alleged sonic attacks perpetrated in this country on U.S. diplomats, local media reported today.
‘What they are publishing, the media, is full of falsehoods and ignorance from the viewpoint of physics, the doctor in physical sciences, Daniel Stolik Novygrod, a permanent professor at the University of Havana, categorically said in an interview with the newspaper Juventud Rebelde, published under the headline ‘The Irresistible Decibels of a Non-Existent ‘Sonic Attack”.
That way, the scientist analyzes a situation in which a score of U.S. diplomats and their families attached to the U.S. Embassy in Cuba allegedly suffered or are suffering discomfort or medical symptoms caused by what they have called ‘sonic attacks’, the newspaper said.
For his part, the doctor in physical sciences, Carlos Barceló, a permanent professor at the Hygiene, Epidemiology and Microbiology Institute, attached to the Ministry of Public Health of Cuba, recalled that foreign media have not described the physical sonic phenomenon, and noted that ‘an exchange of information would be necessary to learn about the origin, if it existed, although categorically, it is impossible.’
The two scientists explained that, in the particularities of sound physics, and its clear explanation, it is evident that neither in the room of the Capri Hotel in Havana nor in the diplomats’ residences such events could happen without being heard nearby.
