@jskf The title and criteria don't say "COVID" anywhere, but the linked market on Kalshi does include COVID in both. Can we update this?

predicts NO

@kenakofer do you know why the title is different? For the description, I guess we could start including the "About" part as well as the rules.

predicts NO

@Eliza I'll add COVID to the title manually next time I log in on the account.

@jskf 90% that Kalshi simply changed it after the mirror, but I'm not sure if that's documented. The relevant API call now has COVID in the title.

@kenakofer Oh, I see that under markets, the entry has title "Will the CDC identify a new variant of concern by December 31, 2024?". So I guess that's a title in the context of the parent event (which itself doesn't have the date in its title).
