This is the sixth gastroenterology clinic closed in the Las Vegas area in the past week. All of the clinics are operated by the same company which health officials say practiced unsafe procedures like reusing the same needles.

So far officials have reported six confirmed cases of Hepatitis–C, but say they expect that number to rise.
