Is there a bug with 広がる?

I started my lessons, and was weirded out by 広がる, a vocabulary that is from level 5, that has a kanji I already burned. I couldn’t find any posts regarding addition of new vocabulary, so I ended up checking the kanji 広 on WaniKani, and 広がる doesn’t appear there. In short, I’m confused.

I literally just unlocked the same one! Maybe it’s just been added?

Yeah, I suddenly have a single lesson. I’d say it was just added.

It likely means it just recently went live and they didn’t make a new content update post yet.

I just got done doing a review session. Then I find a lesson waiting for me. I’m not supposed to having new lessons until tomorrow at 21h00, when I Guru my Kanji. Maybe a new item?

Well, with sentences like

新しいコロナウイルスが広がって、今年の夏は家にいる時間が長くなりそうです。

or

新しいコロナウイルスが広がらないように、店を閉めたり、イベントを中止したりする「自粛」が続いています。

all around us, it’s quite natural they’ve added this verb…

It’s been placed at level 5, that’s why it became immediately available.

I may be wrong, but I thought that vocab was already available before?

Perhaps you’re thinking of 広い? Or 拡がる?

Same, just saw it too. I was a bit confused and searched the content updates, but couldn’t find anything about it.

No, I must be wrong then. I must’ve learned that vocab by myself somewhere else and now I’m mistakingly attributing it to WK.
