Bacterial Wilt is a specific disease, so yes:

However, if it's just pythium causing it, you have wilt from bacteria, all lower case. Pythium is everywhere in the environment. Wet, cold conditions can cause pythium to take over and cause a bacterial imbalance. It doesn't really spread like a disease, and plants can grow out of it when the weather improves.
