ethical dilemma!!!

There's an illegal subletter living in a house. About a week and a half in, there's a horrible case of bed bugs confirmed in the subletter's room. An exterminator concludes that the bed bugs have been there for at least several months, but nobody claims to have had bed bug problems before in this room or house. Now the subletter wants out. The rest of the housemates are worried about being able to cover the rent, now that the subletter is gone.

What should happen? Is the subletter acting immorally by moving out? Should the person who sublet the apartment (the one still on the lease) step in and cover the rent?
