The long-awaited ceremony was watched by millions across the world but the venue had fewer people compared to previous inaugurations due to Covid-19 and security threats.

All guests at the event were dressed in their best linen but their smiles were hidden behind facemasks which were a reminder of the delicate times Biden was taking over helms of the US.

At the venue, Biden was received by former US presidents, George Bush, Bill Clinton and Barack Obama and other key figures in the US administration.

Though outgoing President Donald Trump did not grace the ceremony, his vice president Mike Pence was in attendance.

Biden took the oath of office shortly after Kamala Harris was sworn in as vice president besides her husband, now the second gentleman, Doug Emhoff.
