We consider tunneling of spinless electrons from a single-channel emitter into an empty collector through an interacting resonant level of the quantum dot. When all Coulomb screening of sudden charge variations of the dot during the tunneling is realized by the emitter channel, the system is described with an exactly solvable model of a dissipative qubit. We derive the corresponding Bloch equation for its quantum evolution. We further use it to specify the qubit transient dynamics towards its stationary quantum state after a sudden change of the level position. We demonstrate that the time-dependent tunneling current characterizing this dynamics exhibits an oscillating behavior for a wide range of the model parameters.
