Maybe they will use these cities to confine their sick (SARS outbreak) or to run away from the mainland if an outbreak occurs???

I think it's simply because the Chinese are just really, really weird.
I mean, look at some of this Chinese weirdness...
From your source:
You’d think with overcrowding like this in China they’d be able to quickly fill up those ‘ghost cities’, no?
Day at the beach in China, anyone?

If it has not been mentioned already; I think that it is really intriguing that the building developments seem to be 'color-coded' on their roof-tops, as though they might be meant to be seen from the air.
And although the developments look a little barracks-like, I also find it interesting that they have made the extra expense and effort to add architectural features that might be considered attractive or pleasing to the eye. Makes me think they intend for them to be inhabited for sure.
Perhaps the explanation is alot simpler... could they be building homes for the poor?

well africa is full of resources including oil so perhaps its a sneaky trick to claim ownership as you can't really argue with who build what first when its a mega city complex

My guess is that it was to house workers for factories that are yet to be built. China has moved in.
