Washington Post reported that Officials in IL said the death appears to be the first among a spate of mysterious lung illnesses now under investigation by state and federal health officials in connection to vaping.

The state of IL has witnessed the number of e-cigarette users hospitalised for mysterious lung diseases with related symptoms double over the past week, with over 22 people hospitalised and 12 others having their cases reviewed.

In a statement, Ezike said that agency is sending representatives to IL early next week.

Doctors say their illnesses looked like inhalation injuries where the lungs reacted to a caustic substance. However, they said a clear-cut common cause of the illnesses hasn't been identified and that they are being called "potential cases" that are still under investigation. That may be partly because cases that weren't initially being linked to vaping have begun to be grouped that way.

According to CNN, this is the first such death reported amid a growing number of lung illnesses across the country.

"The severity of illness people are experiencing is alarming and we must get the word out that using e-cigarettes and vaping can be risky", Illinois Department of Public Health Director Dr. Ngozi Ezike said in a statement earlier.

In its news release, the IL agency said the number of people who contracted a respiratory illness after vaping had doubled in the past week, to 22. That is the big question a lot of health officials are asking now, more than ever.

The popular products made by JUUL and other companies contain concentrated amounts of nicotine and other chemicals.

Though e-cigarette makers have long argued their products are safe and have helped people quit traditional cigarettes, Ezike said they're not.

In a statement on Thursday, Gregory Conley, president of the American Vaping Association, said he was "confident" the illnesses were being caused by devices containing cannabis or other synthetic drugs, not nicotine. No specific product has been identified or linked in all cases.

"Those kinds of facts need to be strung together for every single one of these cases, so that we can see if any other kinds of patterns have emerged", Zeller said.
