为什么我Covid negative 后还持续咳嗽呢？
咳嗽是清除体内病毒、异物或粘液的自然反应。有部分人群即使PCR或Self test kit 的检验结果呈covid阴性，在感染期后也会持续出现干咳。
Why am I still coughing after covid?
Cough is a natural reflex to remove virus, dust and mucus in our body. Majority of the covid patients experience dry coughing after covid infection period even though PCR or test-kit indicate negative results.
Covid pathogens will first attack your lungs. Even if you are tested negative, the weakened pathogen doesn’t fully clear out from your body, in chinese medicine it called residue pathogen (余邪）.
