For the study, a team of researchers collected data on more than 3,000 US adults who were surveys in May 2020. The analysis of the data showed that the dreams of women were more affected than men. Researchers believe that the reason for this is that women are bearing more of the burden of caregiving, job loss, and other hardships.

The higher levels of anxiety dreams about illness and death in general, and COVID-19 specifically, are in line with that.”
