Tough one!..

Will go with E.

Health commissioner said that X and that Y.

B, E remains.

We are talking about future : "to prevent the outbreak from recurring in the future."
so would is appropriate here..

Any Verbal GURU's throw some light on this.

A.

B/C/D are out due tense mismatch.

E includes "that" in the last sentence which makes it wordy.

E for me.

since it is an indirect speech, "it will" is not appropriate. Instead, "it would" is correct. Also, "that is required".

"that" is required. Otherwise we must use "verb" only after the "and, despite the recent illnesses".
B is not correct. We need to have something that tells a future in the past, like "would" in option E.
So E only stands.
