Brief Answer:
You need to examine your lungs function.

Detailed Answer:
Hello dear, welcome to Ask a doctor's service.
I read your query and here is my advice.

I think you may need to further examine your lungs function.
I think you may need to do a x-ray of lungs and a spirometry to check lungs function.
Sometimes covid19 may let impaired lung function for a long period of time. Exercising your breath by doing long inhalation, keeping it for 7 seconds and exhaling it slowly may help improve function. Repeat it for several times.
Hope I have answered the question.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
