You may be right but remember those Applicants you mention are based in Addis Abba even during lockdown some applicants were getting communication from Addis. I personal know three people who got their COPR/Visas from Addis in June 2020 and others for interview at Addis. I know the Regional Visa Office is Nairobi for Addis but the Consulate were full operation. Also Biometric request from RC6262/Sydney, NS.
If they got COPR/Visas in June, it could be their visa office is not Nairobi. It could be the office that finalized their application was another and Nairobi only did the visa stamping and COPR issuance. I am not 100% certain when they stopped working on PR applications and when they resumed. I only analyzed the emails they sent me. One in April where they said they are focusing on critical functions (whatever that actually means) and another in September where they said they are working on applications but with reduced staff.

Do you Know your UCI? If you do have one, which you should have if Immigrate to Canada. You can check it Ecas https://services3.cic.gc.ca/ecas/security.do?lang=en if they have created file for your Sponsored person. Let me know if you need more info
I don't have a UCI but, I do have a temporary number from immigration and will check ecas once in awhile. Hopefully it will be soon, Ethiopia is becoming more unstable by the day and increasingly concerning.

Yes, the country has become unstable. Is there any way to have applications expedited because of the deteriorating situation in Ethiopia?

Well that's positive step, I would have worried lost application if no communication

Big congrats! Out of curiosity, how long did it take for passport to go from Addis to Nairobi and back? Looks like about 2 weeks? I really am having a tough time with this last little part of waiting!
