     The World Food Program, the 2020 Nobel Peace Prize winner, and the Nobel Prize Committee announced today, Wednesday, that they have agreed to postpone the award ceremony directly in Oslo next month due to the Corona pandemic.

    The Associated Press quoted the Nobel Committee’s statement after it was expected that David Beasley, head of the World Food Program, would travel to the Norwegian capital to receive the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the organization that won the prestigious prize for its efforts in fighting hunger.

    The statement added, "He will now receive it during a virtual ceremony on the tenth of January."
