Brief Answer:
Negative widal test.

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to HCM,

I have gone through the attached reports.

1:40 dilution is not considered as clinically significant,you do not have typhoid fever as far as the lab reports are concern.

Your widal test is negative and the test should be co-related with clinical symptoms. Means negative widal test does NOT rule out typhoid fever.

Hope this helps and let me know if you need more help.
