Likely postponed to a TBD date.

Another issue to be considered; no confirmation:
Will the coronavirus epidemic, and associated travel quarantines, delay launch campaigns scheduled after the Lunar New Year's holidays?

Wuhan is an important location in China's space program, yes?

Longer-term: Will this also significantly delay programs approaching fruition later this year?

Wuhan is an important base for CASIC (Kuaizhou series), not CASC. Therefore, it is possible to affect launch schedule for kuaizhou series(KZ-1, KZ-11). But it is unlikely coronavirus will impact the space program. For example, CZ5B-Y1, CZ7A-Y1, and their payloads all have arrived at Hainan recently.

But even in a best case scenario, and it’s far too early to say anything on this, Wuhan is likely to be out of commission for a considerable amount of time.
