August 2, 2019
MILWAUKEE (AP) — Wisconsin health officials said Friday they've linked vaping to 11 recent cases where teenagers and young adults developed severe lung disease that required hospitalizations.
Another seven cases that may also be linked to vaping are being investigated but have not yet been confirmed, health officials said.
"We strongly urge people to avoid vaping products and e-cigarettes. Anyone — especially young people who have recently vaped — experiencing unexplained breathing problems should see a doctor," said Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm.
