“There are eight persons.” is perfectly correct. No doubt about it!

But " these are eight people" is a no go.

People is not countable. When the counting is used persons should be used.

I'm curious what you're basing this on. See the note here ("Usage") for a summation of the general usage distinction.

Sounds okay to me. If anything, "eight people" sounds more natural than "eight persons."
