The Nobel Prizes will not be ceremoniously awarded this year either due to the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).
In the statement made by the Nobel Foundation, it was announced that the Nobel laureates will receive their medals in their countries.
“Everyone would like the COVID-19 pandemic to end, but we are not at that point yet. “Nobel laureates will receive their awards and medals in their home countries this year, as they did last year,” said Nobel Foundation President Lars Heikensten.
The awards ceremony, which is held annually on December 10, was canceled for the first time in nearly 60 years due to the pandemic last year. The awards ceremony, which has been canceled again this year, will be held on the digital platform.
Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Nobel Prize ceremony was last canceled in 1956 in protest of the Soviet occupation of Hungary. The ceremony was not held even during the First and Second World Wars.AA
