Dear nomis

Brachytherapy in itself does not weaken ones immunity however  if you are over 60/have other medical conditions you may be more at risk of a serious illness if you catch the coronavirus see link here

This is a worrying time for all. You might find the following link helpful https://www.hse.ie/eng/services/list/5/cancer/news/covid%2019%20cope%20with%20worry.pdf

Meanwhile the advice is to adhere to the advice on the HSE website here

Kind regards
