I don't doubt that UChicago has taken a hit due to the pandemic. The announcement seemed to be of a $220 million loss so far. However, after yesterday's DOE announcement, it appears likely UChicago will be a participant in one of the DOE National Quantum Centers to be announced by the end of the month. That initiatives has $1.25 billion in Congressional funding so far.
