YOu have to ask why was it allowed to have flu catch a ride on the arc?

After all he just drowned a lot of people and the new batch were supposed to be better, but if being omniscient he knew they would not , what was the purpose of that big flood that didn't kill off the chinese?

Believe that the flu will be my great gettin up morning some day .
