grab a chill

What is the literal meaning of the expressions for getting sick after being exposed to cold and/or damp weather in various languages?
Like "catch a cold" in English, "風邪を引く" (something like "pull evil wind") in Japanese, "застудитися" (approx. "overcool oneself") in Ukrainian.

Thanks.
