Thanks for posting your query.
The widal test is indicative of typhoid ( salmonella ) infection however it's not strongly positive . Kindly do mention some details for me to be able to guide you in the best possible manner.
1. What are her symptoms ( onset duration and progress of the same)?
2. What are the medications started ?
3. Any other significant or positive investigations done recently.
Kindly respond as soon as feasible .
Awaiting your reply .
