IL officials said Friday that a person who had recently used an e-cigarette and was hospitalized with severe lung illness had died.

According to the Center for Disease Control, there are 153 possible cases reported in 16 states.

Health officials said it is still unclear whether there's a connection between cases among different states, whether vaping definitively caused these illnesses, and what components or chemicals of e-cigarettes might be responsible.

Oregon's public health departments are urging doctors to be on the lookout for respiratory illness among people who vape or use electronic cigarettes.

The person who died was hospitalized with severe respiratory illness, according to the news release.

Cases have been reported in Chicago and Champaign, Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, Madison, McHenry, Peoria, St. Clair, and Will counties.

They also advised those who vape or who now have lung illness or who may have had it in the past three months, to contact their doctor or local health department. The CDC is reporting they have not identified a cause, but all reported cases have e-cigarette product use or "vaping".

The Health Department says many of those patients report having vaped THC purchased on the black market.

The US state of Illinois' health agency said the unnamed patient was between 17 and 38 years old.

"Anyone who thinks that they may be experiencing serious breathing problems linked to vaping should seek immediate medical attention", said Dr. Acton. Symptoms worsened over a period of days or weeks before they went to the hospital. The Food and Drug Administration is also investigating faulty e-cigarettes and is asking the public to report any "adverse experiences" online.

The health department says vaping liquid typically contains nicotine, which is "highly addictive and harmful to the adolescent brain".

IL health officials announced on Friday the death of an adult who had vaped and later developed a severe respiratory illness.
