About Thousands
1000 or one thousand is the natural number following 999 and preceding 1001. In most English-speaking countries, it is often written with a comma separating the thousands unit: 1,000.
It may also be described as the short thousand in historical discussion of medieval contexts where it might be confused with the Germanic concept of the “long thousand” (1200).

As of right now, the company is unable to provide an estimate time of full restoration.
