Setting it Straight: The second Nobel year in the time of COVID-19: Literature and Chemistry

During the first week in October, the Swedish Nobel Foundation announces the names of those who will be recognised by the Nobel Prizes in Medicine, Physics, Chemistry and Literature, beginning with Medicine on the Monday and concluding with Literature on the Thursday. As I write this on Friday, 8 October, the Peace Laureates will be named tonight (Australian time) by the Norwegian Nobel Committee, and we are yet to learn who is to be honoured by the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, generally known as the Nobel Prize in Economics.
