Cordyceps [ˈkȯ(r)də̇ˌseps], specifically Ophiocordyceps Unilateralis, is a fungal parasite that targets ants and alters their behavior, causing them to climb onto the stem of a plant. At this point, the Cordyceps fungus grows on the ant's exoskeleton, consuming the its tissue, and releasing its spores to infect more hosts.

Ophiocordyceps Unilateralis has been known to destroy entire ant colonies. In response, ants have evolved the ability to sense that a member of the colony is infected; healthy ants will carry the dying one far away from the colony in order to avoid fungal spore exposure.

On September 26th, 2013, the fungus mutated to infect human beings.
On September 27th, 2013, the world went to hell.
