Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
Could again be related to residual symptoms of the viral infection.
It should subside in a few days at the most.
Dizziness happens when there is infection of the inner ear's part called vestibule which is important in maintaining balance.
These symptoms usually do go away in sometime.
Meanwhile medications like antivert, which is OTC, can help with the dizziness.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Kind regards

Yes these could be symptoms of anemia as well as a large number of other conditions related to heart and brain but I mentioned the most likely possibility.
