Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It could be Broncho-pneumonia / from the original viral infection or secondary bacterial infection.
You should check blood count, ESR and sputum
You may need a course of antibiotics for a week or so and reassessment after that.
If the infiltrations do not regress after a month, you will need extensive investigations.
A Pulmonologist is the best person under these circumstances.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
