All reported cases have a history of e-cigarette product use or vaping.

The Middlesex-London Health Unit said in a statement that "a youth has been diagnosed with severe respiratory illness that has been linked to the individual's use of vaping products".

"The increasing number of cases of severe pulmonary illnesses associated with vaping is alarming", Dr. Bela Matyas, the county Public Health officer, said in a statement released last week.

Earlier this year, in a news piece put out by Cayman 27, it was reported that between 2016 and 2018, 807 Caymanian students between years 9 and 12 used some sort of electronic cigarette, several of whom were daily users and 350 of whom had used e-cigarettes within the past thirty days. Many have reported using both THC and nicotine, and some have reported using e-cigarette products containing only nicotine. "Because consumers can not be sure whether any THC vaping products may contain Vitamin E acetate, consumers are urged to avoid buying vaping products on the street".

UC San Diego Health experts say vapers can experience progressive symptoms of lung disease, such as shortness of breath and fatigue. "The only common link so far is vaping".

As U.S. health officials look into what might be causing hundreds of serious breathing illnesses in people who use e-cigarettes and other vaping devices, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has activated its Emergency Operations Center (EOC) to aid the investigations. If you need help quitting tobacco or vaping products, contact your health care provider or access online resources to quit tobacco and/or marijuana. "We are working closely with the CDC as this illness continues to be investigated".

The CDC says 36 states and 1 USA territory have reported more than 380 potential cases of severe respiratory illness associated with the use of e-cigarette or vaping products among teenagers and adults.

"In light of the growing evidence, I have become increasingly concerned about the prevalence and possible health consequences of vaping, particularly as they affect our youth".

"CDC has made it a preference to find out what's causing this outbreak of e-cigarette or vaping-associated injuries and deaths", mentioned CDC Director Robert Redfield, M.D.
