Mr Tuidravu said they will be emphasis on settlements where people have been known to move around from house to house Makoi which is the current hotspot for COVID-19 transmission will also be looked at.

He said Police officers have their arrest protocols because their safety would be on the line as well. He said in a 12-hour operation there were a thousand personnel at work.
