In brief: Acute of chronic?

Acute bronchitis is usually due to either a bacterial or viral infection.
To prevent it, avoidance of infected people when possible as well as frequent hand washing is needed. Chronic bronchitis, a form of copd, is typically due to smoking so avoidance of smoking and smoking cessation is needed to prevent it.
