Two probable cases of vaping-related lung illness reported in N.B”

The Indiana State Department of Health reported two more Hoosiers have died from severe lung injuries caused by e-cigarette use.

The South Dakota Department of Health reports the number of cases jumped from six cases at the end of September to 11 cases as of Thursday.

10, 2019, The Centers for Disease and Prevention on said 219 vaping-related illnesses in the US were reported in the past week.

As the outbreak picks up pace, some states, including New York, Michigan and Rhode Island, have banned the sale of flavored e-cigarettes, while MA has gone a step further by imposing a four-month ban on all vaping products. This has doubled in the past month.

The Centers for Disease and Prevention on Thursday said 219 cases were reported in the past week.

The CDC also said it has issued an updated guidance for doctors caring for patients who may have both a vaping lung injury and a lung infection.

Most who got sick said they vaped products containing THC, the marijuana ingredient that causes a high.

The CDC says the latest findings suggest products with THC play a role in the outbreak.

The ISDH said the majority of the cases have been reported among people aged 16-29.

The CDC is also analyzing data to determine how many of those killed or injured used THC-containing products prior to their injury. Those who vape nicotine to quit cigarette smoking should not return to cigarettes.
