Health officials in Texas say the state has recorded its first death associated with vaping-related lung illnesses.

Last week, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reported 1,080 cases and 18 deaths from the illness.

Statewide-The Indiana State Department of Health (ISDH) is reporting two more Hoosiers have died of severe lung injuries linked to a history of e-cigarette use, or "vaping".

That's an increase from last week, when there were 1,080 cases of vaping-related lung injuries reported in 48 states and the US Virgin Islands.

Michigan's vaping-related lung injury cases have all been in the lower peninsula and have been to people ranging from 16 to 67 years old. The state also has not said what vaping device or material led to lung injury in that case. State public health officials have logged 29 deaths in 22 states. The department also says that among the illnesses, almost 90% of patients reported vaping marijuana or THC, the high-producing ingredient in marijuana.

The size of the outbreak also increased to almost 1,300 cases in 49 states, up from 1,080 cases in 48 states reported last week, the CDC said.

At present, CDC and MDHHS recommend individuals consider refraining from using e-cigarette or vaping products that contain nicotine.

Individuals who do not now use tobacco products should not start using e-cigarette or vaping products.

Ned Sharpless, the acting head of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), reported that among samples tested of THC containing products, 47 percent contained Vitamin E acetate which is used as a cutting agent and is harmful when vaporized and inhaled.

Individuals should not buy any type of e-cigarette or vaping products, particularly those containing THC, off the street.

In the US, some states, including New York, Michigan and Rhode Island, have banned the sale of flavoured e-cigarettes, while MA has gone a step further by imposing a four-month ban on all vaping products.
