Why do churches need PPP loans from the government?

Why do churches need PPP loans from the government? Yes, I have issues with nixing church and government. But that’s not what my question is about. It’s why do churches need these loans? Why are they short of funds? The easy answer is COVID. But is that too easy? For some, if not many or most, I believe it is too easy.
