  • By sampling 29 patients’ lung fluids across 10 states, the CDC rediscovered the chemical, which was also tied to the sickness in early September by New York officials. [The Verge / Mary Beth Griggs]
  • But they are still hesitant to eliminate other chemicals as the cause of the illnesses, positing that animal studies might be needed to definitively determine the illnesses’ cause. [Associated Press / Mike Stobbe]
  • Since March, at least 2,051 Americans have fallen ill with vaping-related sicknesses. To date, 39 deaths were confirmed by the CDC. [Wall Street Journal / Brianna Abbott and Jennifer Maloney]

  • Even some of Juul’s most loyal customers are ditching the electronic smoking alternative in light of health concerns. [Vice News / Hannah Smothers]

Parties fall short of outright victory in Spain
  • Spain’s elections on Sunday once again did not bring a governing majority for any party. [Associated Press / Ciaran Giles]
  • With roughly 34 percent of the vote, the Socialist party maintained the largest share of seats but fell short of a majority in the fourth election since 2015. [El País]
  • While the conservative People’s Party came in second, the far-right Vox party doubled its seats from the April elections. [BBC]
  • Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez of the Socialist party called for this election to attempt to gain more seats for his party. “One way or another we’ll form a progressive government and unblock the political stalemate. … We call upon all the political parties, except for those that work against coexistence and foster hatred,” Sanchez said. [Reuters / Belén Carreño, Andrei Khalip and Ingrid Melander]
  • Sanchez’s bet backfired, with the Socialists losing a few seats, and Spain’s political future is uncertain as his party wants to avoid returning to the polls or creating a grand coalition with conservative or left-wing separatist rivals. [The Guardian / Sam Jones]
