Researchers have been asking people to fill out an online survey about their dreams in order to analyse how coronavirus is being experienced "unconsciously".

The research is being carried out by Lockdown Dreams, which is an independent group of postgraduate psychoanalysis students in London.
They say the most common trend so far is people are saying they are experiencing more detailed dreams that usual, which is a sharp contrast to the day-to-day lockdown life.
In one example, someone tried to buy broken biscuits from a supermarket with children's TV presenters.
In another bizarre dream, a person climbed into a plane to escape a collapsing building but when they realised there was no pilot they hid in the toilet instead.
Jake Roberts, a spokesperson for the group, told The Guardian: "Everyone’s quite shocked by the fact that they’re having incredibly vivid dreams.
"That’s so interesting because our material waking lives have become, in a way, more dull
"But this is being reflected in a more vivid dreaming life.
"Our minds are obviously reaching out to try and make something from the little stimuli we’re receiving being locked down, and bringing up things we’ve completely forgotten about."
