I've been playing with the GitHub Coronavirus data at:

https://github.com/CSSEGISandData/COVID-19

Thank You Johns Hopkins CSSE.

I've been using this URL in an HTTP dataset.

https://raw.githubusercontent.com/CSSEGISandData/COVID-19/master/csse_covid_19_data/csse_covid_19_time_series/time_series_19-covid-Confirmed.csv

However, the dataset gets a new column each day. When DSS looks at the new data it does not reflect the Schema that the data had the prior day and throws at least a warning.

Is there a better way to gather such a dataset that expands in this column-wise way without manually refreshing the schema?
