Common cause of post-covid-19 dry cough and sore throat

Cough is a part of body’s defense against germs and irritants like dust, phlegm, pollutants. It is a reflex action to clear these irritants from lungs and windpipe. Due to excessive coughing during the covid-19 infection, there is irritation and inflammation along the airways lining and windpipe. The cough thus develops into a cycle even after post-covid-19 infection, which can last for 1-2 months resulting in voice hoarseness, breathlessness, sore throat and heart palpitations.
