Can an Android tablet get infected with a virus just by scanning an SSID Access Point/WiFi without connecting to the network [closed]

        I bought a new Android tablet and booted it for the first time. The WiFi was enabled by default, so it must have scanned for any SSID/AP/router in the area. Say a sophisticated virus has infected all computers and phones on my home network. Can my new Android tablet catch that infection from the machines within that network even though it never connected to the infected wifi network?
