3-none with lancet even if it was used

y u say 'none with lancet even if it was used"
is it because the lancet is non hollow, and the virus on lancet will die less than a minute?

Irrational thinking that a Dr is not going to do something that would put a patient at risk. This is a "what if" question and we do not deal with what if questions.
