In pre-covid times that often used to mean that the visa "foil" was being printed and stuck into the passport. Hope that is still the case and it changes to issued for you quickly.

thanks for the info Lizzyq. Any chink of hope after all this time is a great help. I got my I797 (I think that’s the number) form from the US back just before all the embassies closed -literally a couple of days!
