Response from Dr. Holodniy

You don't provide any context for why these lab tests were obtained. I can't determine whether those values are the lower level of detection values for those tests, or actual values in a clinical sample. It would seem unlikely that a single sample would be positive for all those viruses at the same time. I suggest you discuss these lab values with your doctor or whoever ordered those tests.
