That's why everyone is always asking "Are you bitten?" or saying "he was bitten" etc.. Bites have that effect.
The amputation of oldmanWinter's leg was not to "stop the bleeding" (still astounds me how you could possibly even remotely come to that conclusion). It was to stop the infection before it spread and killed him.
Because I know medicine. Not saying it was the best choice to cut his leg off with a hatchet but its hollywood. Nor did I ever say the infection isnt rapid after being bit. What I said was you dont die just from being bitten. They are asking "are you bit" or saying "he/she is bit" because they already know if they let it go they will die and turn, where as if they can fix the wound and recover they can live.
I dont see how this is hard to understand. Its been pointed out several times in the show already. They are taking the proper precautions in the group to make sure the ones bitten who have treatment are restrained until recovery has happened.
