According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), as of October 8, 2019, 1,299 cases of vaping-related lung injury had been reported from 49 states and 1 US territory.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 1,080 cases and 18 deaths from the illness. Most patients have reported a history of using products containing THC, the ingredient that gives marijuana its high.

People with lung injury associated with vaping or e-cigarette use could also have flu and other respiratory illnesses, US health officials said Friday in updating advice to health-care professionals and the public.

Right now, there are 95 confirmed and probable lung injury cases in the state connected to vaping, according to the TDSHS.

These cases stretch across 49 states, as well as the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Victims who have died range in ages from 17 to 75 and average out to 45 years old.

E-cigarettes should not be used by youth, young adults, pregnant women or people who have not previously used tobacco products, according to CDC. Cases of lung injury have been reported in 49 states, the District of Columbia and one USA territory.

Individuals should not buy any type of e-cigarette or vaping products, particularly those containing THC, off the street.

"This death is a sad reminder of the severity of these unexplained illnesses", Dr. Angela Dunn, Utah Department of Health epidemiologist, said in the news release.

Symptoms of the vaping-related lung illnesses include shortness of breath, cough and chest pain, and in some cases, nausea, vomiting, fever and weight loss after vaping.

Washington state Governor Jay Inslee has urged state agencies to ban flavoured and cannabis-derived vaping products.

13 per cent reported exclusive use of nicotine-containing products. "Until more is known, we repeat our call for Canadians to consider refraining from vaping".
