Everyone has this error. Is this because of the improper data in the csv file or is it because of the delimiter?
I can see few places having double semi-colon in it.
I do not have this issue myself, but others have reported that if you add an encoding parameter, it fixed the problem.
encoding = "unicode_escape"
encoding = "cp1252"
Either of those should work.
