Is the GSC Coverage Report still experiencing delays?
Last week, Google Search Console (GSC) seemed to be having yet another data issue, this time with the Coverage Report. According to GSC users, the last time the Coverage report was updated was around the end of August.
Usually, the delay in updating the report takes 2 to 3 days, but not over a week. People contacted John Muller on Twitter for any comments/updates on a timeframe for fixing the Coverage report issue –
All signs point at tomorrow, sorry for the delay.

Unfortunately, as we can see from Google Webmasters post, the issue is still ongoing.
We’re currently experiencing longer than usual delays in the Search Console Index Coverage report. This only affects reporting, not crawling, indexing, or ranking of websites. We’ll update here once this issue is resolved. Thanks for your patience!

On the plus side, the coverage reporting delays have no impact on crawling, indexing and website ranking.
