Two are hospitalized with vaping-related lung injuries in Stanislaus County”

Health officials still don't know exactly what is causing the outbreak, but vaping appears to be a common link among affected patients.

Officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said last week they are looking at 215 possible cases of lung disease in 25 states involving teens or young adults who have used e-cigarettes or other vaping devices.

The Ohio Department of Health has asked health-care providers to contact their local health department if they see patients with suspected, unexplained serious pulmonary illness who use vaping products.

The report came after USA health officials revealed new national figures on Friday, Aug. 30.

State health officials in Oregon have now linked the death of man in July to a severe respiratory illness believed to be caused by an e-cigarette, according to a statement from the Oregon Health Authority (OHA) released on Tuesday.

Public health physician Ann Thomas says investigators don't yet know whether the illnesses are caused by contaminants, ingredients in the liquid or something such as the device itself.

On Thursday, top health officials in the Trump administration reiterated warnings against marijuana use by adolescents and pregnant women, emphasizing the increasing potency of the drug. "The samples represent a variety of different types of products and substances - a number of which contained incomplete information about the product".

"Residents are strongly encouraged to not utilize any vaping products, especially those that contain tetrahydrocannabinol (THC) or cannabidiol (CBD)", SCPH said.

Those hospitalized with vaping-related injuries have symptoms including cough, chest pain and trouble breathing. Some have experienced other symptoms, including vomiting, diarrhea, fever, and fatigue.
