I would like to know how high Hep C 1a viral loads can get before fatality. Mine is currently at 7 Million and I can't get anything that's not very wishy-washy concerning an answer.

There is no direct correlation between HCV viral load level and death. There is a weak correlation between high viral load and disease progression (extent of liver damage). Unfortunately not an exact science.
