Is there worse than dying ?

Authorities say that lytic phages – good phages – may become lysogenic.

Shall we imagine the dialog :
Doctor : Fred, you are going to die by a superbug
Fred : Nothing to do ?
Doctor : Phages … but 1 phage out of 1 million may become lysogenic and transform a bacteria
Fred : And what about that bacteria ?
Doctor : The bacteria may be harmful ?
Fred : But I’m going to die !!! Is there worse than dying ?
