Gov. Cuomo’s Health Department is telling New Yorkers not to use any vaping products until officials can figure out what's causing the mysterious illnesses.
It’s a better-safe-than-sorry approach from the Cuomo administration and echoes warnings from federal health officials, who have said Americans should steer clear of vaping products until more is known.
“There have been a number of deaths there is an ongoing investigation,” Cuomo said. “Nobody knows exactly what it is.”
There have been 34 illnesses possibly linked to vaping in New York, as well as 15 in New Jersey and five in Connecticut, officials said.
