In brief: No
Bronchitis itself is rarely fatal, but it can worsen into a more serious condition that can be fatal.
The vast majority of respiratory infections are self-limited and clear without serious harm.

In brief: No
Bronchitis is a generic term that really refers to large airway inflammation.
Infants and children tend to get bronchiolitis, which is inflammation of the small airways due to infections, typically viral. Neither condition is universally fatal, yet all illnesses, if severe enough, could lead to death. Make sure to have your child examined by their physician.
