the first vulnerability mentioned there is CVE-2019-1787.

debian reports it fixed in debian packages:

I believe it's the same for ubuntu packages:

I haven't looked at the rest of vulnerabilities, they may be still present
(e.g. ignored because evaluated as minor or not applicable).

What I want to say is, that whole fact about debian and ubuntu having older
than newest clamav packages does NOT mean that the security bugs are not
fixed there.

What was already mentioned is that distribution packagers do backport fixes
to older versions to prevent incompatibilities introduced by newer packages,
pretty summarised here:
