The concern is two fold. First, any virus with a 3% mortality rate is a bear. Despite this, the overall impact it will have on hospital capacity is most likely what motivated the China quarantine. A very high number of infected patients develop pneumonia. Consequently, this can easily overwhelm the medical resources of any community.
