One of two vaping cases is from Maui

One of the two new cases of vaping-related lung injuries in the state reported last week involved an adolescent from Maui, an official with the state Department of Health said Monday.

Spokeswoman Janice Okubo said the case was reported to the department the first week of this month. She said no other information about the adolescent will be released.

Each county in the state now has at least one confirmed case of E-cigarette and Vaping Associated Lung Injury, or EVALI, Okubo said.

All four patients, including two adolescents, reported vaping THC before developing symptoms including shortness of breath, gastrointestinal problems, fever and chest pains, health officials said. All were hospitalized and have recovered.
