will go for B.
known to have recovered indicates the recovery of people is still going on...

I like D - Statement after semi-colon seems to be a complete thought. The only question I have is whether "few known people" is the correct idiom. Choice B was tempting to me, but I didn't agree with using the perfect tense twice, "known to have" and "symptoms have appeared"

D is plain awkward with the use of 'few known people'.

(A) few people are known to recover from the disease after the appearance of the clinical symptoms
- I like this choice too. Something weird about the tense.

(B) few people are known to have recovered from the disease once the clinical symptoms have appeared
- Parallel tense structure.

(C) there are few known people who have recovered from the disease once the clinical symptoms have appeared
- This changes the meaning of the sentence

(D) after the clinical symptoms appear, there are few known people who have recovered from the disease
- This sentence is awkward. We are not referring to a few known people, but that few people are known. The meaning is changed.

(E) recovery from the disease is known for only a few people after the clinical symptoms appear
- This is tempting. Can someone tell me why this is wrong? Or maybe it is right. Who knows?

I was going to pick C.....
how does C change meaning. Can someone please explain.
I didn't pick B because it uses passive form
