Question: Why didn't Chris want the cure to spread in the end?

Answer: Just like the humans, he had a fear of becoming extinct.

Answer: The vampires were now everywhere, with very few humans left in their blood farms.

The only way to keep life going was for the vampire disease to be cured and everybody to turn back human.
