so is it A or B.....

I think both are correct....but would prefer A since it implies it is still happening...

I think the answer is B.
Although the fear of rabies is an on-going phenomenon, thus a simple present tense should be used, I think only B makes sense.

Few people are KNOWN to have recovered from the disease
vs
Few people are KNOWN to recover from the disease

I think the usage of KNOWN implies that the fear of that disease was based on incidents that have been reported in the past, so a present perfect tense should be used.

If the author were simply stating a fact that only very few survive, then he would have written "few recover from the disease" rather than "few are known to recover".

Just my 2 cents.
