More deaths are expected from vaping-related lung illnesses, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday.

Seven patients have died so far from the illnesses: two in California, and one each in Indiana, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota and Oregon. Several of the victims also had underlying health conditions.

“We do expect others,” Schuchat said during a call with reporters Thursday.
