An introduction of UBI right now will ensure those left behind by the government - the self employed etc - manage to keep their heads above water. It will alleviate and concerns the poorer in society may have during these uncertain times and it will help to boost the economy when the virus is over.
It makes complete sense and it should be implemented immediately, even for just a temporary duration until the virus is containable/curable.

Why the contribution is important

In these uncertain times people require help from their governments. An introduction of UBI will help people survive, will instil a confidence in their government and will help to kick start the economy when the virus is dealt with.
People need help and they need it now. They have lost jobs, family members, friends and they need the government to step up and help them out.
