COVID-19 rebound is when people with COVID-19 get better, then begin to get symptoms 2-8 days after they have recovered. They may also test positive again. COVID-19 rebound has been seen in people who received treatment for COVID-19 as well as people who did not receive treatment. One of several treatments that are associated with COVID-19 rebound is Paxlovid. This is an antiviral pill and it is the medicine that is used most often to treat COVID-19.
