D

Who modifies people, so eliminate A and C

Also died of such infections makes more sense, hence eliminate B

Between D and E, later is awkward.

who in childhood might have at one time died....

This sounds like some of them did die in childhood. To my "ear" it sounds kind of strange.

I prefer B

B

need a relative clause, WHO to describe people, so AC are out. Between B and D, B is more parallel and idiomatic.

In D, "might have at one time died" is just awkward. once is a better fit.
