Nobel Prize banquet to get canceled due to coronavirus pandemic

The Nobel Prize Banquet is to get cancelled due to the covid-19 pandemic for the first time in centuries.

The event traditionally marks the closing of the Nobel Week. In this event all the winners of the coveted prize are invited and awarded.

This event takes place in the Swedish capital Stockholm. The coronavirus pandemic prevented this evnt to take place. Though,the winners to the 2020 Nobel Prize will be announced. The results will be out on nobelprize.org this year

The site also shared a piece of advise so people can stay safe amid the coronavirus pandemic. Visitors who cannot travel to the museum during the summer can also view the exhibition digitally.

The first time when the event was cancelled was because of 1956, protest at the Soviet Union’s invasion of Hungary. Yet another time it got cancelled in world war one and two.

“There are two problems. You cannot gather that many people next to each other. And it is uncertain whether people can travel to Sweden to the extent they want,” Nobel Foundation Chairman Lars Heikensten told Dagens Nyheter, the Swedish newspaper.
