The government strongly urged that liquid-type e-cigarettes or vaping products be banned, one month after it issued a recommendation that people should refrain from using them. The recommendation is placed until e-cigarettes are confirmed to be non-hazardous and do not damage the respiratory system.

Liquid-type e-cigarettes or vaping products are known to be less smelly and contain fewer harmful substances. Thirty-six products from 11 companies are currently sold in Korea.

[Soundbite] (E-CIGARETTE USER(VOICE MODIFIED)) : "E-cigarettes are almost odorless, so I can smoke it freely."

But following a string of serious lung injuries and deaths associated with e-cigarettes in America, last month, the Korean government recommended that its citizens refrain from using the products. And earlier this month, a suspected case of lung injury related to vaping was reported here in the nation. Now the government has come up with even stronger measures.

[Soundbite] PARK NEUNG-HOO(MINISTER OF HEALTH AND WELFARE) : "We strongly advise that people stop using e-cigarettes until the correlation between e-cigarette use and lung injury is investigated."

In particular, youths are warned against using e-cigarettes or vaping. The health ministry plans to complete the analyses of seven harmful substances in these products by next month. Also, studies on the extent of their harmfulness will be carried out more swiftly, in order to produce findings within the first half of next year. Part of the efforts involve checking patients with serious lung injuries to find out if there are any more suspected cases. Authorities will also gradually ban e-cigarettes with fruit-scented additives that entice youths to pick up the habit. Harder crackdowns on sales of e-cigarettes or vaping products to youth will be carried out. Import clearance of liquid nicotine will be toughened and laws will be amended to allow product recall and sales ban.
