The New York Times is also reporting that a State Department medical team flew to Guangzhou and is performing tests on other employees and their family members - some 170 workers in total at the site, plus their family members.
Heather Nauert, a State Department spokeswoman, said in a statement that the individuals from the US office in Guangzhou were returned home for further evaluation, Reuters reported. Many of the Cubans I spoke with seemed confident the sonic attacks had been invented by the United States diplomatic community in Havana as an excuse to withdraw their staff in the face of rising tensions with Washington.
'If the US makes formal contact with us, China will continue necessary investigations in an earnest and responsible manner and maintain close communication and cooperation with the US, ' Hua said at a regularly scheduled news conference.
"We are working to figure out what took place both in Havana and now in China as well".
Cuba has denied targeting embassy staff, and the United States has not blamed the country's government for the suspected attacks. Starting in 2016, USA representatives in Cuba experienced hearing loss and and other cognitive problems usually associated with concussions and other trauma to the head.
While the cause of the mysterious ailment, which already claimed at least one US official in Guangzhou back in April, is still under scrutiny, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last month likened the symptoms displayed by the stricken worker to those experienced by US diplomats in Cuba.

The State Department previously issued a travel alert for Americans in China, prompting Foreign Minister Wang Yi to warn Washington not to "politicize" the incidents. One U.S. official told the New York Times that there are reports of isolated incidents at other U.S. embassies and consulates, but so far no pattern has emerged.
The preliminary findings of the medical reports on the 24 personnel affected in Cuba showed they had sensory and memory problems similar to the brain dysfunction seen with concussions. Some of the injuries, which also affected 10 Canadian diplomats and their families, resembled brain trauma. The U.S., blaming Havana, expelled Cuban dignitaries following the incident.
Hua said the Foreign Ministry had not yet been formally informed by the US government about the new cases, having only heard about them through media reports.
An editorial in Beijing's state-run Global Times newspaper said: "Practically all Chinese people do not believe that this country's official organisations would carry out such sonic attacks against USA diplomats".
