All patients have reported a history of using e-cigarette, or vaping, products, according to the CDC.

About 15 per cent of the lung injury cases in the US have been in those under 18 years old, Schuchat said.

The CDC says people should consider refraining from vaping, especially with products including THC. Of those, 26 individuals were interviewed and 80 percent reported vaping with THC-containing products. Those who vape nicotine to quit cigarette smoking should not return to cigarettes.
