Risk to Host Computer

I have a drive that came from a Mac that was infected with at least one virus. I've scanned that drive with anti-viral software which cleaned up the problem. I now want to clone the drive to an SSD.

Is there any risk to the computer I use to do this? That is, do files live on the host computer for a brief period while they are being copied?

Theoretically, my drive is now sanitized, and I guess I'm being paranoid, but no anti-virus software is perfect.

Is there a risk in cloning this drive?

Many thanks to anybody who can shed some light.
