Coughs post viral infection can linger a very long time. Once the airways are infected, it can take many weeks to fully recover.  Here is some information for you to review https://www.webmd.com/cold-and-flu/features/stubborn-cough#1.  But if you have been followed by your doctor, you can always check back in to see if what you are experiencing is a stubborn cough.
