Regarding ventilator prices & availability, best to go directly to the (Chinese) source: https://www.made-in-china.com/multi-search/Ventilator/F1--CD_Surgical-Equipment-Catalog/1.html Prices seem to vary between US$1400 to $28000 - depending on model (for the serious hospital type ventilators) - but you likely get a big discount on bulk buys. Bit over a hundred pages of choices...
Jury is still out on the source apparently - neither pangolins or bats confirmed under latest studies. From Nature: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-020-00548-w "The press-conference report was the result of an “embarrassing miscommunication between the bioinformatics group and the lab group of the study”, explains Xiao Lihua, a parasitologist at the South China Agricultural University and a co-author of the paper. A whole-genome comparison found that the pangolin and human viruses share 90.3% of their DNA."
