I didn’t mention it because I thought it just happened because the fish were dead and they lost their color. As for the lesions of fungal growth, if you look close at the orange tailed female, towards her tail but not on her fin, you can see what almost resembles mold. It’s tough to see on camera but there is a patch of growth. Also, I have no fake plants in my aquarium it is completely planted with driftwood and a little stone decoration.You're not seeing any lesions of fungal like growths on the fish at all though, are you? Those tend to be the giveaway with columaris.
Worms are pretty common in guppies, most have been bred in fish farms abroad and have been exposed to both round and flat worms.
Just seen your update post: bloody patches? You didn't mention bloody patches before, did you?
For now, I would stick with salt treatment and daily water changes, monitor how they progress, then once this is dealt with, look at worming your stock, and quarantining any new fish before adding them to the main tank.
Also remove any fake plants and decor that has sharp edges, both bettas and guppies are vulnerable to torn fins from plastic plants, which can let bacteria in and lead to secondary infections.
