Probably viral: What is her age? If she has no underlying condition (cf, bpd, asthma, immunodeficiency), then she is probably recovering from a viral pneumonia. This can take quite a while. Stay in touch with her pediatrician for follow up. Low energy and sweats could be residual convalescent symptoms.

I would also add that keeping her well hydrated and following her temperature is important. If she has any problems with cough, shortness of breath or chest pain, she should be seen right away.
