As of October 29, 2019, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has reported 1888 cases of electronic cigarette or product-related lung injury (EVALI) from 49 states (all states except Alaska), the District of Columbia, and one region in the United States.
Thirty-seven deaths have been confirmed in 24 states (as of October 29, 2019).
All EVALI patients reported a history of using electronic cigarettes or electronic aerosolized products.
To date, THC has been present in most samples tested by FDA, and most patients have reported a history of using THC-containing products.
The latest national and state surveys in the United States show that products containing tetrahydrocannabinol, especially those obtained from the streets or other informal channels (e.g. friends, family members, illegal dealers), are related to most cases and play a major role in the outbreak.
At present, FDA and CDC have not yet determined the cause of lung injury in these cases. The only common point in all cases is that patients report the use of glass bong aerosols.
So far, no compound or ingredient has caused these diseases. There may be more than one reason for this outbreak. Many different sources of substances and products are still under investigation.
Thirty-seven deaths occurred in 24 states and the District of Columbia: Alabama, California (3), Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia (3), Illinois (2), Indiana (3), Kansas (2), Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota (3), Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Jersey, new york, Oregon (2), Pennsylvania, Tennessee (2), Texas, Utah and Virginia.
