Is virus/ransomware transmittal possible via Mobile VPN?

When a remote user connects via either Mobile SSLVPN or Mobile IKEv2 VPN, is it possible for a virus, ransomware or other malware to traverse the VPN and infect the corporate network?

I have clients wanting to work from home and I can use VPN or I can use RDP with a firewall login required first to keep just anyone from seeing RDP ports.

What I am asking about is, once a connection is made via secured RDP or via VPN, wouldn't the VPN then be less secure because virus/malware/ransomware can go from the VPN-connected remote computer right onto the corporate network?
