Mr Sanchez believes he caught a cold from working outside on the weekend.
Catch is a common informal verb patients may use to explain how they developed conditions such as a cold, the flu or viruses.
It can only be used for illnesses that are contagious.
To go down with is also a common way of saying the same thing:
Sarah went down with the flu last week.
Do you know the formal verb equivalent for catch which healthcare professionals might use when communicating with each other?
