Português: pegar dengue
Inglês: get dengue fever

Bom, pessoal, na semana passada estive ausente por estar com dengue. Com isso, hoje decidi deixar uma pequena contribuição sobre o assunto em inglês.

Uma das maneiras de se dizer "pegar" uma doença é com o verbo "get". O passado de "get" é "got". Então, para dizer "eu peguei dengue", você pode utilizar "I got dengue fever". Sim, chamam a "dengue" em inglês de "dengue fever"; "fever", como vocês devem saber, equivale a "febre". Confiram a pronúncia de "dengue fever" no link a seguir.


Exemplos:

  1. Officials say that 30,002 people in India had been sickened with dengue fever through October, a 59 percent jump from the 18,860 recorded for all of 2011. But the real number of Indians who get dengue fever annually is in the millions, several experts said. [The New York Times]

Currently there is no vaccine for dengue and no specific drug to treat dengue infection. Hence prevention is very important (when you travel to an endemic area or live in an endemic area).

There is no foolproof way to prevent dengue infection.

Ways to prevent dengue infection include:
•Take precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitoes and
•Control breeding of mosquito.

What you can do to prevent mosquito bites.
•Close the windows at dawn and dusk (active mosquito times) to prevent mosquitoes from entering your house.
•Wear protective clothing like long pants and long-sleeved shirts.
•You can apply permethrin (a common synthetic chemical insecticide) to your clothing and shoes.
•Clothes pretreated with permethrin are also available.
•Use insect repellent. DEET insect repellent is available as liquids, lotions, and sprays. Apply 10-30 percent DEET insect repellent on your exposed skin. Choose the concentration of DEET insect repellent depending on the hours of protection you need. Higher concentration of DEET, gives you longer protection.
•Do not allow children to wear shorts and half sleeved clothes
•Mosquito that transmits dengue infection usually lives indoor and is found in dark, cool places like in closets, under beds, behind curtains, and in bathrooms. Use flying-insect spray to kill mosquitoes in these areas.
•Use flying-insect spray in sleeping area to kill mosquitoes.

What you can do to control mosquitoes around your home
•Remove the place where they live and breed (i.e. their habitat).
•Remove standing water from places where mosquitoes can breed like gutters, old tires, buckets, plastic covers or any other container
•Clear and change the water in coolers, pools, rain barrels, and potted plant trays at least once a week to eliminate possible mosquito habitats.
•Regularly treat and circulate the water in swimming pool.

"Come down with dengue fever"?
Sempre ouço get west nile virus / get infected with the west nile virus / have the west nile fever. Dengue deve estar correto mas nao deve ser muito usado, pelo menos nos EUA

Oi Vitor,

Seu complemento é importante, porém de acordo com texto da Wikipedia, o west nile virus e a Dengue Fever são similares, mas não são exatamente a mesma coisa.

WNV is one of the Japanese encephalitis antigenic serocomplex of viruses. Image reconstructions and cryoelectron microscopy reveal a 45–50 nm virion covered with a relatively smooth protein surface. This structure is similar to the dengue fever virus; both belong to the genus Flaviviruswithin the family Flaviviridae. The genetic material of WNV is a positive-sense, single strand of RNA, which is between 11,000 and 12,000 nucleotides long; these genes encode seven nonstructural proteins and three structural proteins. The RNA strand is held within a nucleocapsid formed from 12-kDa protein blocks; the capsid is contained within a host-derived membrane altered by two viral glycoproteins. Fonte: Wikipedia
