ND up to 1 confirmed, 6 probable vaping-related illness cases

BISMARCK, N.D. - The North Dakota Department of Health has confirmed one case related to vaping and six probable cases are under investigation for vaping related illnesses.

State epidemiologist Kodi Pinks says the cases range from youth to adults.

“I think it's definitely concerning because we don't really understand what's going on yet; we're still on the early on side of investigating,” said Pinks.

Pinks says it's seemingly healthy individuals who don't have any underlying health conditions are getting sick. She also says it's important to get the facts from the CDC and if you know someone who needs help quitting vaping, contact ND Quits.
