Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Yes you are vulnerable due to diabetes and your immune system will be weak

So you must stay in isolation so as to avoid catching the virus

Please do let me know if you have any other question

You may need to stay in isolation for 12 weeks

You can talk to your doctor as there are dressings which can be done at home as well
