Chronic coronavirus: These patients have been sick for weeks, but doctors don't know why

Melanie Montano, 32, developed a fever, cough, stomach problems, and lost her sense of taste and smell like other sufferers of the novel coronavirus.

Dr's are unsure whether those symptoms suggest virus is still alive in the body and creating continued havoc, or whether it has come and gone, leaving a lingering immune or inflammatory response that makes people continue to feel sick.
