Scientists who helped identify Hepatitis C virus win 2020 Nobel Medicine Prize

STOCKHOLM (Reuters) – Two Americans and a Briton won the 2020 Nobel Prize for Medicine on Monday for work in identifying the Hepatitis C virus, which causes cirrhosis and liver cancer.

The discoveries by scientists Harvey Alter, Charles Rice and Briton Michael Houghton [now in Canada] meant there was now a chance of eradicating the Hepatitis C virus completely, the award-giving body said.

Remarkably, the hard science Nobel Prizes have, so far, been the last refuge from the otherwise universal urge to lower standards in the name of Diversity.

“Prior to their work, the discovery of the Hepatitis A and B viruses had been critical steps forward,” the Nobel Assembly at Sweden’s Karolinska Institute said in a statement on awarding the prize of 10 million Swedish crowns ($1.1 million).

“The discovery of Hepatitis C virus revealed the cause of the remaining cases of chronic hepatitis and made possible blood tests and new medicines that have saved millions of lives.”

By the way, why isn’t the Nobel Prize more like $10 million?

Lots of rich guys have started their own prizes, which is good, but nobody pays much attention to any prizes other than the Nobel and the Fields medal for mathematicians.
