Vaping-Related Lung Injury Cases In U.S. Reach 1,500, With 33 Deaths

WASHINGTON, Oct. 17 (NTS) — The CDC stated Thursday that 1,479 vaping-related lung injury cases arose across the country as of Oct. 15.
  A total of 33 deaths occur in 24 U.S. states, with a median age of 44 years old, according to the CDC.
  Among 849 patients with knowledge on substances used in e-cigarettes three months before symptom onset, about 78 percent reported using products containing THC, the principal psychoactive compound in marijuana, while 10 percent reported exclusive use of nicotine-containing products, according to the CDC.
  ”This is extremely complicated and difficult. It’s fatal or potentially fatal with half of the cases requiring intensive care,” said CDC Principal Deputy Director Anne Schuchat at a Congress hearing on Wednesday.
  Schuchat said the approaching flu season complicates efforts to diagnose vaping cases.
  The rising number of vaping-related deaths has terrified the country. The FDA is creating a policy that will remove the market of unauthorized, non-tobacco-flavored e-cigarettes.
  The CDC advised that people abstain from using e-cigarettes because the precise cause(s) of lung injury is not yet known.
