No doubt it is administratively far simpler for them to pay everyone the same amount, so that people receive the money when they need it, which is right now. Her husband has also lost his job and worked full time earning more than that amount, so I suppose it balances out.

Will it be so bad for the country, if by receiving this people can still pay their mortgage/rent/bills and be able to spend again once the non-essential shops are open and they can start work, rather than being up to their eyes in debt and unable to spend to get things going again?

Is this report true, that Spain intends to bring in a Universal Basic Income and make it a permanent thing even after the corona virus crisis is over? Or are they talking about the €440 per month payment to people who don't have employment contracts? I would be glad if it is to be UBI or some form of it, but I haven't seen it reported as such in the Spanish press.

Teachers in state schools are paid for sure but their contracts will obviously have holiday periods built in. Not sure state school teachers will be prepared to conduct classes over July August given they are still technically performing their teaching at the moment. For example, as of Thursday the teachers are not going to be setting exercisers or in contact with students until then end of Easter break
I know many parents are finding it difficult with kids at home and many feel they should be compensated by keeping schools open during the summer months but teachers shouldnt be placed at risk of infection because others feel the deserve a break

Neither OH (state school teacher) nor daughter (private school teacher) have received any indication whatsoever of teaching in the months of July or August.

Have just watched the news on RTVE where they say that the tests are with the local authorities and they will issue the protocol about how they are to be used later in the day. It seems that first sanitary staff will be tested.
The government has also asked for certain establishments to be made ready for those that test positive and who will find it difficult to safe isolate in their own homes.

They are talking about the Renta Básica I think. UBI has been on the Unidas Podemos agenda for years but I very much doubt it will get passed through as a permanent thing, given the coalition don't have a working majority.
