Cuba on Sunday said it had no explanation for a U.S. government employee’s report of sounds heard in her home two days before she started having health issues, The Hill reports.

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

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo last week announced that the U.S. in May established a Health Incidents Response Task Force to look into “unexplained health incidents” affecting Americans in Cuba and China.

The task force found that 24 government officials and family members in Cuba showed symptoms “similar to those noted following concussion or minor traumatic brain injury.”

The "nature of the injuries suffered by the affected personnel, and whether a common cause exists for all cases, has not yet been established,” wrote Pompeo on June 5.

The U.S. pulled two more workers from its embassy in Cuba on Friday and is testing them for possible brain injuries. If confirmed by doctors to have the same condition as the previous ones, the two individuals would mark the 25th and 26th confirmed patients from the bizarre incidents that were first disclosed last year and have been deemed “specific attacks.”

The latest incident in Cuba happened on May 27 at a U.S. diplomat's home. Cuba said it sent investigators to the home, but found no potential source of sound and could not meet with the woman.
