Couple things to keep in mind here:
Firstly, lots of wacko Creationists like him make a distinction between micro and macro-evolution, only the latter of which they deny. It’s a weaselly tactic where they accept the very obvious evidence of evolution in bacteria and whatnot, but then they dispute all scientific evidence towards the evolution of humans and other animals.
Secondly, let’s not guess his lines of reasoning. It’s entirely possible that even if he denied evolution wholesale, he wouldn’t maintain the logical consistency to apply that belief to virology. He may never have been informed on the fact that viruses evolve, so he would simply take what experts tell him about viruses at face value, as he wouldn’t know to dispute that. Think of non-Celiac people who try to avoid gluten; if you fed them a meal with gluten and didn’t tell them, do you think they’d realize? Don’t underestimate the willful ignorance of idiots like Pence to avoid cognitive dissonance.
