Who is paying for quarantining of all these people? Those being held in Hospitals. Are they paying the going rates? Those being held in Hotels or on Cruise ships?

There are old rules in place for that. The ship owner pays is the basic principle.

Passenger transport in the high seas was regulated by international agreements pretty early.

The hotels is a different matter. The Government would be responsible for that.

I think a few nights of quarantine are worth it to prevent us from becoming China with shit response and an overwhelming lack of cares about the population.

I'm sorry, are we suggesting that 1 city is the same as an entire country wide government?

But comparing Flint to China is pretty apt anyway. Most of Michigan is a shithole.

I imagine multiple sources will cover cost in an appropriate manner of responsibility. Government,insurances,employers and other disaster relief organizations. Not suggested as being accurate or complete.

I would imagine that there are a fair number of these people who have bills adding up at home with out their normal income to cover the costs. I doubt the banks and utilities will care that they were in quarantine.

I think it fair to say some will suffer various difficulties.
