Aplausos a los sanitarios

As you may know, Spain has been in lockdown since 14 March 2020, every evening they express their gratitude to the many medical staff whose vital work has multiplied. If you have not seen or experienced this social phenomenon take a look at the video to see what happens, it started on 14 March at 10pm but has since become a daily 8pm appointment for all Spaniards.

The reading and listening exercise is below the video and can help you practise subordinate clauses followed by El Subjuntivo.

Why is there subjunctive when the statment is a fact or is true as far as the speaker is concerned

Why does Aunque SEA por uno minutos or Aunque ESTEMOS encerrados use subjunctive?
