More than 1,600 people report mysterious vaping illness

There are 1,604 confirmed and probable cases of lung injury in 49 states and 34 deaths associated with e-cigarette use, the Centers for Disease and Control and Prevention announced Thursday.

The big picture: Additional patient lab tests have taken place related to a variety of vape products used. Little progress has been made in uncovering the specific cause of these respiratory illnesses, though CDC officials say that THC vape products have been linked to a majority of patients with vaping-related lung injuries.

  • The CDC’s investigation still has not identified any specific e-cigarette or vaping product or substance linked to all cases.
