True of COVID-19 sufferers and of George Floyd. The key phrase at this moment in American history.
"I can't breathe, said Floyd as he was being suffocated. "I can't breathe" thought more than 100,000 victims as they were dying of Covid. "I can't breathe" chanted countless Americans in the streets, protesting enduring police brutality.

Usually occurs when laying on one's back when wrapped in blanket so that only their head is shown; blanket is also tucked under their feet and under arms. Looks like one is making a cocoon as butterflies would.

Girl: "Aw, look at you all nestled up there."
Sister: "Yeah, im cocooning, it's the best way to keep warm."

retreating to the seclusion of your home (as for privacy or escape)
I put on my favorite bulky clothes and laid on the sofa for hours. I was cocooning because I did not want to be bothered by anyone today.

A sexual act similar to that of a Bukakke, except the victim is seated on a swiveling office chair, and spun around until he/she is completely wrapped in semen, similar to that of an Orb-Weaver Spider wrapping it’s victim in a cocoon of silk.
“He was unaware that being cocooned was part of the agency’s hiring process. This made him excited.”

“Hey! Grab your beer, grab a friend, and get in on this cocoon.”

“I asked him what helps his skin take on that glowing, dewy appearance.” He replied... “Cocooning.”

Is like spooning, but when the little spoon is so small that they are totally wrapped and enveloped in their larger partners special hug that they appear to actually be in a cocoon.
She was so well covered in his flesh when spooning last night, she was actually cocooning.

Did you see that cute chick emerge from that hug?

That was not hugging, that was cocooning, and she was the butterfly.
