COVID 19: Unfortunately, pulmonary sequela from COVID 19 can potentially last weeks to months, especially if you have had a moderate to severe infection. If you have difficulty breathing , would recommend prompt medical evaluation. There is a possibility that you could have a secondary infection as well, so medical assessment may be beneficial.
