Govt payout unclear

Being self employed & unable to work, I applied for the wage subsidy & 6 hours later got this massive payout into my bank. There must be a few of you in the same boat. I understand I have to pay tax on that, But it has to last me 12 weeks. Why? the lockdown is 4 weeks. Do I have to pay the remainder back?
The website does not explain this & I cant get through on the ph. Anybody know?

I received the same. To my knowledge we don’t have to pay it back but its supposed to last until we get back on our feet

Jacinda has done this very well. People before profit. It all helps.
