Brief Answer:
no this virus is not included in the above panel

Detailed Answer:
HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

No, it does not include a test for hepatitis unless it is specifically mentioned.

Tests would only be done on the hepatitis viruses mentioned.

If you suspect hepatitis E or you wish to be assessed for this infection, you would need to let your doctor know.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
