Tor Metrics shows something very abnormal

Tor Metrics confirms it is a huge slowdown in Tor network. It took 25 seconds in 04/15/24 to download a 5 MiB file through Tor network but as for 05/16/24 it takes 150 seconds to download a 5 MiB file! Tor is now working 6 times slower than a month ago!

Any hypotheses as to what causes this? Does it correlate with any other variables?

Maybe because of someone downloading from Torrents using Tor??

Or maybe because of DDOS attacks?

Elections looming… War in Europe and in the ME… Amped up dictatorships. TOR is a threat.
