I read this last night. Now there is no way to tell at this time if in fact the patient does have Ebola however it raises two very important issues. One is that Belize is taking a very proactive and in my view correct response to the virus; if there is any chance that someone is infected the best way to protect your own citizens is deny entry. The second is that if indeed they do have the virus I would not want to be one of the 4000 + people on that ship.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Quarantine has always been a moral problem.
Belize has had a garbage economy since they asked the British to leave (like most places that got rid of them, actually) and their health care is not exactly stellar, extensive or properly funded.
By the numbers, 4000 is much better than loosing up to 40-60% of their 350,000 people (140,000-210,000).
Best to Coventrate the ship so as to spare the women, children and bar tenders.

They and Mexico which also refused the ship are at least protecting their citizens. Travel bans and closed borders are a moral issue and may not seem like the politically correct thing to do but they have worked for Senegal and Nigeria. Time North America wised up.
