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.
The problem is that you believe any bite is treatable. As though antibiotic and cleaning will solve any bite. Not the case. Take all the antibiotics you want, it will do you no good.
The only way to stop the infection is to act quick and lop the bitten area of, that is if you are so lucky to have been bitten on an extremity or limb. The big black dude and T-Dog were gone, no matter the measures taken.
