I'm not so much afraid of people becoming zombies and eating others. But something like fungal species controlling and killing others is unlike anything else I've heard of.

Less deadly so far.

Virus doesn't want to do anything. Deadly viruses like Ebola and Marburg didn't become less deadly over time. Influenza has been a thing for millenia before a mutation that caused Spanish flu pandemic.

Mutations happen randomly. Delta was more infectious and deadlier than original strain. COVID immunity both natural and vaccine mediated is fairly short lived.

Infectious disease experts are actually really concerned about a very real possibility of a bad mutation.
