Health officials in London, Ontario, are investigating a case of vaping-related illness in a youth who suffered severe respiratory problems that have been linked to e-cigarette use. Officials at the Middlesex-London Health Unit in London — a city southwest of Toronto — did not reveal many details about the individual, saying only it was a high school-aged youth who vaped “at least daily.” Dr. Christopher Mackie, medical officer for the county health department, said the patient had severe illness and was admitted to an intensive care unit. But the patient — who had no other health issues — has since recovered and has been released from the hospital. Source: STAT, 9/18/19.
