“I think everyone would like the COVID-19 pandemic to end, but we have not yet reached that.

Uncertainty about the pandemic and international travel opportunities is why the 2021 laureates will receive their medals and diplomas in their countries, ”said Vidar Helgesen, Executive Director of the Nobel Foundation, in a statement.

Winners of this year's prizes in chemistry, literature, physics, medicine and economics, as well as the Nobel Peace Prize, will be announced between October 4-11.
