In brief: Yes

There are several possible causes for persistence of symptoms due to uris.
You can see this with adult pertussis (whooping cough), mycoplasma pneumoniae infection, and there are a variety of chronic conditions that are infectious (tb, fungal, etc.) causes and non-infectious conditions that can do this.
