Death toll from vaping lung disease rises to at least 11 as Georgia and Florida report fatalities from the rare form of pneumonia that has left officials struggling to identify the cause
The Centers for Disease Control is currently investigating 530 reported cases of severe lung illness related to vaping as of Thursday. 
The agency said that it still does not know what in e-cigarettes is causing the health problems, but that the cases have occurred in people using nicotine-based e-cigarettes and THC e-cigarettes. 
While the Georgia patient had a history of heavy e-cigarette use, doctors said the patient didn't vape THC, the active ingredient in marijuana. 
No information regarding the individual who died in Florida has been made available by the Florida Department of Health. 
Out of the 530 cases, the CDC has analyzed 373 and determined that that two-thirds of people with severe lung illnesses, or 67 percent are 18 to 34 years old, and 16 percent are under 18.   The majority, 72 percent, are male. 
The CDC said symptoms include cough, shortness of breath, fatigue, chest pain, nausea, vomiting and diarrhea.  These worsen over time.
