China may postpone its annual parliament session, state media said Monday, as the country battles to control the outbreak of the new coronavirus.

China's ruling council will "deliberate a draft decision" over postponing the ten-day National People's Congress (NPC), said official news agency Xinhua, ahead of the meeting due to start on March 5.

The parliamentary meeting has been held annually in March for the past 35 years.
