Sorry for late reply and inconvenience.
Thanks for the follow-up.
I understand your concern.
As per your description, such low WBC count with low lymphocyte count indicates viral infection.

And it should be rechecked after 2-4 weeks if your symptoms are not improving.

You should maintain a good hydration.

Discuss with your doctor to start a multivitamin supplement to recover from viral fatigue.

I would advise you to see your doctor for a clinical correlation of your blood work with your symptoms.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
