Straight C as Virus is Singular and it is correctly used in this option

When the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) pandemic occurred in late 2002, officials feared that the outbreak would widespread; they were concerned that the virus would become a global threat and it would kill vast numbers of patients who would have no protection against it.

(A) it would kill vast numbers of patients who would have no protection against it.
-- for this to be correct , we need a , before the and. (, and it would kill )
(B) it would kill vast numbers of patients with no protection against it.
-- same issue as b.
(C) kill vast numbers of patients who would have no protection against it.
-- Correct choice.
(D) kill vast numbers of patients who have no protection against them.
-- them refers to singular - virus.
(E) kill vast numbers of patients with no protection against them.
-- same error as d.

So, Finally we eliminated B because of which of the following ?


1> Because we don't know what it is referring to (virus or threat)?{Though if we go by meaning it refers to virus!}
2> Not parallel ?
could someone please clarify my doubt?

Partly yes, we eliminated B because
1. first it is not required. As we are already talking about the virus, there is no need to introduce an extra "it".
2. The 2nd "it" is making the sentence awkward, due to the presence of 1st it.

Hope that makes sense.

Why is option B incorrect? 'That' need not be there in the option along with it as per solution given by Veritas. Can we get some more understanding on this?
