            Despite its potential, Machine Learning has played little role in the present pandemic, due to the lack of data (i.e., there were not many COVID-19 samples in the early stage). Thus, this paper proposes a novel cough audio segmentation framework that may be applied on top of existing COVID-19 cough datasets to increase the number of samples, as well as filtering out noises and uninformative data. We demonstrate the efficiency of our framework on two popular open datasets.
