But we cannot continue lock down until then, it is not workable in the short and medium term.

Yup, there is no other practical way forward. Waiting for a vaccine (that might yet never appear) is delusional. Some (variably effective) treatments probably will appear.

But, before either a vaccine or treatments, there is, MUST BE, testing. In the shorter to medium term is is only testing that can allow us to stop destroying the economy. Both current-infection testing and antibody testing.
