What's the difference between linger and linger on?

I mean why the preposition ''on'' is added. I am also talking about the meaning, when something continues to exist longer than expected.

According to https://www.macmillandictionary.com/dictionary/british/linger-on, it either means the same or not - second meaning is "to be alive, although very ill, for a long time after you seemed likely to die"
