OK, I'll bite. What was this illness that contaminated all of
your lovebirds? And I'm assuming, they had to be put down or
they died since you had to "start all over."
For what it's worth, regardless of what the illness was that your
birds contracted, if you followed standard quarantine procedures,
tested the new bird for the diseases you are asking about now,
you would have probably not had any problems with your existing
flock at the time.
