An epidemiologist of respiratory disease, Thomas Haupt, stated that these cases were observed in youngsters who otherwise were healthy and without any respiratory complication and suddenly they came with serious respiratory problems, for which they had to be positioned on ventilators.

CNN was told by Haupt that earlier the problem was suspected to be due to an infection but all the tests were shown to be negative. And now they’re suspecting vaping but doctors are unaware of the vaping’s constituency and from where it was procured.
