Dear Author,

Thank you for reaching out to us with your question. Its possible that the paper is being moved from one editor to editor, which is why even though the status date has changed, the status message stays the same. This could be due to several reasons such as editor unavailability or editor refusing to peer review the file owing to other commitments etc.
