If put infected body or lens in dry cabinet..... Will it cause contamination to other lens or body in the dry cab?

Depends, whether you put lens cap on. Whether the fungus already spread to the outside of your lens.

Best is to put under the sun without front cap for a few days, then turn over to the back cap and let the sun shine.
Repeat process with a UV Lamp.

Fungus spores is everywhere... spread or no spread they are already there in the air around us. The only reason the spores will grow into fungus is when the conditions are suitable.. dark and humid with no movement.
