Not 100% certain but I believe the US embassy is open but with limited capacity. They are processing visas but from what I understand there’s a backlog and they’re prioritizing appointments for F-1 visas. Probably worth calling the embassy and confirming. Another potential option for your friend is to transit through a third country (not particularly easy given COVID restrictions per se) and make an appointment there for stamping. My condolences 💐

Sorry for my lack of knowledge here. Thanks!
