And your facts to support that claim are?  And what at the sources for
that data?  

"the site said the virus was probably transmitted on a flash disk drive
which somehow had not been scanned."

Well, you cannot "scan" without running something that does that scan.
So that the scan might've been missed for a USB thumb drive (which is
just a guess at the moment) means there *IS* something to do the scan.

I did not post a URL because you'll find reports that they used AV and they
didn't use AV.

I will leave it at that.
