Partner Visa unusual Delay in CO assign

Dear All,

    I am offshore Australian PR 189 holder who is currently working in Qatar. I got married in December 2019 in person, had my honeymoon in thiland and lodged my application on Feb 02nd, 2020. After that my wife travelled back to Pakistan and due to covid all borders got closed. We are living seperately since then.

Its been 11 months now but my CO is not assigned yet. Thankfully i have all the pictures, videos which i uploaded but no news. Is it something unusual ? Is process delayed due to Covid ?

Everything is delayed due to covid.
