The pandemic has impacted just about everything including how the 2021 Nobel Laureates are are receiving their awards.
For a second year, COVID-19 has scuttled the traditional formal banquet in Stockholm, Sweden which is traditionally attended by the winners in chemistry, physics, medicine, literature and economics.
The award in literature was handed out today at noon at the Swedish ambassador’s residence in London, England.
Other winners will receive their medals and diplomas at ceremonies this week in Europe and the United States.
The Nobel Peace Prize will be awarded separately in Oslo, Norway on Friday
