Why are passengers not allowed to get off?

I do find it odd that those who were not infected couldn't disembark. I certainly would've gotten off in Greece. It'll be interesting to see what happens when they dock in Gibraltar.
I would think this would be the most logical course of action. Why send a ship with 400 sick out of 2800, back to sea? Aren't more passengers likely to get sick on the way to Gibraltar?
The ship did dock in Greece and an excursion was planned there, but the Greek Health Ministry decided to keep the passengers on.

man, what an ugly situation. I can see the point of view of the docking city, but aren't people less likely to get proper medical care on a cruise ship than in an actual hospital? if everyone from the ship is kept properly quarantined on land, there shouldn't be a big problem, but I can see how that'd be quite hard to enforce.
