The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), in a September 6 news release, said that five other deaths have been confirmed in Oregon, Minnesota, Illinois, Indiana, and California.

Persse said the illness is not an infection of the lungs, so antibiotics have no effect. Lee Norman Norman said in a statement.

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment said in a news release Tuesday the recent death involved a Kansas resident over the age of 50 who had a history of underlying health issues.

The CDC encourages doctors to report possible cases of lung disease related to e-cigarette use to state health departments to initiate a further evaluation.

Health officials in Collin and Denton counties don't now have a way to track lung related illnesses to vaping.

The CDC said it has found no evidence of infectious disease so the respiratory illness was "likely associated with chemical exposure", although the specific substance responsible is yet to be confirmed.

Public health officials are looking for common threads among patients with the symptoms and asking about the types of vaping products they used, Turner said.

The state health department said it's working with the Centers for Disease Control as it gathers more information.

The letter also asked clinicians to report vaping cases to the health department. If you use a vaping device, we urge you to discontinue doing so until and unless health care investigators know more.

Megan Constantino, 36, from St Petersburg, Florida, quit vaping six days ago after hearing reports of the illnesses and deaths related to vaping.

New York Governor Andrew Cuomo has proposed legislation to ban flavoured e-cigarettes statewide in an effort to protect young people from the unknown consequences of vaping. Others have been sickened by vaping a chemical containing THC and vitamin E acetate.

Health officials in Dallas County last week reported they had identified nine probable or confirmed cases of severe lung disease related to e-cigarettes.

Symptoms may include shortness of breath, chest pain, fever, fatigue, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.

"The outcome of that inaction has led to potential product manipulation and permitted tobacco companies to lure a new generation with (electronic cigarette) advertising and flavors directed at youth", Jordan said in a statement to the News Service.
