How to permanently delete a topic from a category?

I created a new user to check how you’d sign up and set up a profile. I posted a topic in the uncategorised category with a couple of embedded links to check onebox was working. I then signed in as my admin and deleted the topic, but the topic count for the category still reads 1 even though the topic has been deleted. How do I change this back to 0?

Have you refreshed the page?

Yes I’ve refreshed the page and it’s still showing one topic.

I’m not sure, but it is possible that this stat isn’t updated in real-time.
Maybe try to trigger manually Jobs::CategoryStats in /sidekiq , Scheduler tab?
