MONTREAL (AP) – Canadian health officials are confirming another case of severe pulmonary illness linked to vaping. Details about the age and condition of victim in Quebec were not included in Friday’s release announcing the case.
Canada’s chief public health officer said last week at least three reports of potential vaping-related illnesses were being investigated in the country.
That followed a report from the Middlesex-London Health Unit that a teen from London, Ontario, who was using e-cigarettes daily suffered a severe case of pulmonary illness.
Officials said the youth was initially on life support but was recovering at home, saying it was believed to be the first confirmed case of vaping-related lung disease in Canada. Quebec’s director of public health advised the practice is not without risks.
