    Thank you sir for the question. With the series of tests that have been done, I am inclined to suggest that the result is truly negative. However I hope that the tests were appropriately done in well controlled environments e.g high temperature could affect some test kits. I will strongly advice you go to the Reference laboratory such as at the National Institute of Medical Research(NIMR) yaba to access the IHVN facility. They can provide a more reassuring test results. Thank you
