Very nice inflammatory comment, a nice fast ball over the middle of the plate.

People who get viruses are pirates and people who use 3rd party app stores.

Not always bud...next time you download for example a flashlight app from the play store, check the permissions first. It's amazing that so many flashlight apps want full access to the internet and access to your contacts and storage. Always ALWAYS remember to check the permissions an app wants before installing it no matter where you downloaded it from.

Not like when the curator of a closed walled garden themselves leave WiFi gate open themselves.
Your best security, is obscurity, and that is fleeting at best.

What is so hard for google to have a scanning system for when the malicious apps gets uploaded to google play and if found the system refuses the malicious app to be added to google play then google play will be 99.99% safe

They're already doing it, and most people who get viruses are sideloading apps or using less reliable stores.
