After Paxlovid treatment, COVID-19 symptoms rarely rebound, study says – UPI.com

Despite worries that COVID-19 symptoms can return after patients take the drug Paxlovid, cases of rebound symptoms are actually rare, a new study shows.

In an advisory last month, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention cautioned that COVID-19 can sometimes make a comeback after an infected person has gone through a round of the antiviral pills.

In these cases of “COVID-19 rebound,” the illness improved or resolved within an average of three days, without additional treatment, the CDC advised in May.
