The first case of lung illness associated with the use of e-cigarettes has been reported.
The Korea Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said on Monday that vaping-related respiratory illness was reported by a patient who suffers from coughing and breathing difficulties. But it remains to be seen whether the patient's health problems are directly linked to the use of e-cigarettes.
In the U.S., there have been 26 deaths and more than 1,000 cases of patients falling ill due to the use of vaping products.
